    Hate to sell this truck but the banks won’t finance a 15-20 year old tri axle dump. So unless I finance a newer $80-100k truck, I need to pay cash. I just paid off my 5500 so I will go finance a new one of these instead.

    71,000 miles
    Cummins diesel
    Automatic
    4x4
    9 foot marauder dump body
    Power windows, mirrors locks
    never had a plow or sander. Used very little in winter. Brake pads and all fluids done at 60k. EGR service just done at 69,000 miles. Tires about 50%.
    $37,000

    If it was used very little in the winter, how did all the rust occur?

    And what was it used for...the springs are shot.

    I'm in the market for a truck like this.

    The springs being straight could be from the dump bed being extended all the way no ?

    What, was that picture of the new truck not relevant to your point? Perhaps the new truck spring pack is a slight bit less flat, but ya know, you have to expect a little bit of wear and tear from 70,000 miles of picking up groceries no? I eat a lot!
