    I just bought a 1990 Chevy 3500, 4x4, 454, G80 locker in the rear, all power options. Its got a Hiniker 8.5' plow on it. Its not my choice of plows, but it will work for now. It needs freshened up with a tune up, new brake lines, fluids, exhaust etc. I need to fix the cab corners and rockers too because some knuckle head pop riveted the panels on and called it a day. I also need to work on getting the plow off of the truck because its been on since last winter and is stuck due to rust. Its nothing some penetrating lube and torches won't take care of. I picked it up for $2200 so I can't really complain too much.

    135,000 miles, not too bad for a 1990.
