    What year?
    What size V-8?
    Does the spedo stop at 99,999? If yes Im sure its turned over at least once.
    Sounds like a great deal!

    its a 1999, I dont know what the meter goes to. I do know it was used for one (1) appartment complex. It didnt do anything but plow snow. Never drove anywhere but to fill up on gas. Thats it.

    Jeez LBP... You need to give me this guys number so I can get in on some of these deals....

    What year are we talking here?

    I would say the truck alone should be worth $1500 especially with the new tranny.

    The plow if all the pumps work is gravy.

    Isn't the truck bigger than what you are driving around now? It could make a good leaf truck too if you pick it up soon.

    No, you dont understand. I WENT ot his work, and watched what he does 9 days ago. Its perfectly legal. They get new equipment ALL the time. And I mean ALL the time. They buy Bobcat and Bunton ZTRs in quantities of 250 EVERY other year!!!! No joke, this guy is the head maintenance guy of a MULTI-MILLION dollar appartment biz from Michigan to Kentucky. Believe me, I know perfectly well that he isnt stealing this stuff. Since hes an employee, the sell it cheaper than dirt so they can make room for new stuff.

    The PLOW is worth at LEAST that much! Ya, its a little beat up, but I mean, hey, Thats what it does, plows snow, and It works.

    Yes, its MUCH bigger than what I'm driving now, its a 3/4 ton, mines just under 1/2 ton. And, I was looking for a bigger truck for a leaf box too!

    I will post a pic as soon as he brings it home. He works an hr. away from here, so hes gotta get someone to drive his truck home or something too. I dono if its an S-10 or not, just know its a 2500 w/ a bench seat, and no rust on outside.
