    Looking for opinions on the truck in the link... I've had Fords with the 7.3 (loved it!), a GMC/6.5TD (not so much... ) and I'm looking for a bit newer truck but I'm concerned about the longevity of the 6.6TD. I've heard nothing but good things about the Allison transmission and I like that this is a one owner from new truck..... It has 136,000mi on it and the guy is asking $10,500.... Does this sound high? I've been looking at so many trucks lately I can hardly see straight.... Thanks for any input. See the link below.

    Any thoughts? I was talking to a friend of mine in Calgary who's a heavy equipment mechanic and he seems to think it looks alright since the plow is included. He also said the 6.6L is a pretty dependable motor from what he's heard.... Anyone here have one with higher mileage??

    No, it's CDN $. What would that truck be worth in the US roughly? What would you guys expect to pay for something like that? I'm thinking around $9000.00 CDN would be a good price....
