    Might have just been a plow truck so it might be beat, but it seems like an ok price

    A/C and cd player work? Seems like a fair price.

    planning on buying our second dump-truck within the next 6 months, so im looking into it, wasmnt planning really on buying somthing this soon, but it just seemed like a good deal, havnt actually seen it in person..if youve seen it how does it look, wouldnt mind you telliing me how she looks or maybe next time you drive by stopping and letting me know wat you think, that would be a HUGE help...

    any idea how the 6.5 L diesels are , ive never heard to much about them

    i remember some guys saying somthing about them not being so great???
    but then again people say that about everyting....

    The engines are not that great just be prepared to deal with electronic fuel injection pumps failing. Also expect to replace the engine at 133,000 miles most of them in my area barely make 200,000kms (124,000 miles). Especially in a heavy truck like the 3500HD.

    Beware of the engine. I have heard many bad things about the the 6.5 diesels made before 97.5-98 model year. Many of them that I see need rebuilds early. GravelRat might be on the long side of milage wise. I've seen some need rebuilds at 65-90k. That seems to be average for the older ones around here.
