    I was wondering what you guys think about this truck. Any ploblems or concerns I should be aware of with this type of truck, motor, plow etc. Whats your opoion of this truck and do you think this is a good buy? Kinda sounds to me this guy is in a real hurry to sell or unload this truck. It was listed for 17,000 a few weeks ago, I contacted the owner the other day and he said that he lowered the price to 14,995. I stopped by yesterday while I was in the area and took a look at it (Seems like its in great shape), This morning the owner E-mailed me asking if I was interested in it and if I wanted to come look at it and take it for a drive, He also told me he dropped the price to 13,000.

    2001 chevy 3500 duramax diesel allison T1000 trans only 57000 miles, new tires, 2 new batteries, PS/AC, AM/FM, 12x8x4 ft dump bed 8.5 ft western pro snow plow, clean, one owner,dual tanks, runs great

    Does the owner have any records of service?

    Yeah the plow comes with it, Im wondering if he'd go lower on the price since he went from 17 down to 13 in just a few days, if he's in that big of a hurry to sell maybe I can realy steal it. Im not sure of the records (Im going to ask him for them if I go up this week)
