    Hi everyone ,
    A friend of a friend is selling a 1993 Ford L9000 single axle dump truck (g.v.w. 33,000). It has a cummins engine , he said it was the bigger engine u could get ,more hosrepower when he bought it , not exactly sure what the engine is other than cummins. it sounds great no smoke or blow by . air suspension , 240,000 miles . the mirror on the front drivers side fender needs to be put back on because some thought it would be a good idea to use it as a handle when putting the hood down :nono:. Back tires dont look bad, Front tires could use new He told me he would sell it to me for $5,000 firm . Thoughts ?

    Sounds good to me as long as the tranny clutch and etc. Are good. What kind of tranny is in it

    $5000 would be a good price. They would either come with a cummins or a Cat engine. A cummins is a really capable engine.

    as long as its not rotten from sitting,I wouldnt be scared .That truck is cheap to fix as they are probably the most popular model ever produced ,and in general,besides rads,engines and trannies ,parts for that truck are cheaper than your pick-up truck .
