    Whats the HP ? Comes with no warranty. Thats half the price of the same size truck around here. Must be a reason for cheap price and no warranty.

    Different parts of the country = differnt markets. Its high for this area, gas engine with 100-K :confused: not so good.

    Last one I picked up was a Fuso diesel with 20-K miles it has a 14' dump bed with a pull tarp cover and I bought it when the econimy was still good for 20-K.

    Nice truck. . I sure its fine man no need to make a big deal over warranty and cheap price- Its a used comercial truck prob. sold "as-is" obviously you dont buy a truck that slips and grinds etc. . If it runs good those little trucks last forever. . And that price Ive seen often for similar truck. . The other day I saw one online, same year, up in the Tampa area for $14,200

    My friend told me to look at it, says its a clean truck in person. We'll see.

    Its got the 5.2L diesel, auto, ac, power windows and locks with CD player.

    100k is nothing for commercial trucks.

    If I can get it for 13k TTT I'll take it

    You would have to watch about dumping a heavy load the deck has heavy longsills but the rest of it looks a little light I could see it getting tweaked if you dumped a load that was heavy to one side.

    As for the mileage that is nothing for one of those Isuzu trucks they can go for miles and miles around here 250,000 miles isn't uncommon.

    Thats what I thought but for mulch and grass clippings i should be fine. Plus couldn't I weld on the dump body and add more structual support?
