    I have a 92 Chevy K3500 1 ton dump with a 454ci, 5 spd., 8ft Fisher plow and 94,500 miles. I am curious as to what this truck is worth, as I have been kicking the idea around of selling it and buying a diesel. Truck runs great and has been well maintained. Recent rear brakes, wheel bearings, all new shocks, 2 new front tires and new steering stabilizer. Throw some numbers at me guys.

    There is one similar arround here going for 7600. I Think that is a bit outragous, I would say That one there is 5-6500 I dont know. People ask crazy prices for 1 ton dumps. Mind as well be one of them. If it sells, it sells.

    Prices obviously vary by region, a clean '92 1 ton dump out here would go for over $10K, as long as it wasn't a bucket of rust under that pretty red paint.

    omg that's like me asking you how much a boeing 747 costs...
    20 years old, with quad Rolls Royce turbo fans.

    There's just too much left out for guesswork,
    I say 4,250 but why not find out for yourself, go to:

    Thanks for the advise, but I did look at KBB and they only have a listing for the K3500 pickup, not the dually or the dump bed or the plow, etc. So, seeing as we (user on this site) have a good working knowledge of these vehicles, just thought I would ask. Besides, KBB gives you a market value, not what someone is willing to pay. But thanks, and by the way, my plane is not for sale.

    If you are not in a hurry to sell it watch ebay for the next few months see what they are selling for that should give you a idea. I don't really know what it is worth but if i was looking for anotheir truck i would give you 7-8k tops

    I would keep it if I was you thats a sharp truck...I wouldn't spend the money if you don't have to especially if that truck is running good...but if I was in the market for that truck I'd probably pay around $7k...more if it was diesel (obviously)

    Anyways, good luck with whichever path you take

    I think I would hold on to it.

    What is the reason for the different treat pattern on the duals?
