    Ok boys, I'm going to try this one more time. With the other more expensive ones up here I figured I'd give people a cheaper option. Many of you know the truck. I have put it up and taken it off the market for a few different reasons, but now its back. I originally found an 08 that I wanted so I put it for sale........but the 08 sold first so I decided to keep it. I then listed it for sale with a coolant issue that turned out to just be the EGR cooler. Someone could have snapped it up cheap at the time, but nevertheless I'm pricing it fairly IMO. It's back from the dealer with a clean bill of health. I decided to keep it till the end of the season, and now I really don't need it b/c I have plenty of trucks.

    186,000 TEXAS miles. Very clean, rust free truck. The miles do not bother me in the least. It runs and drives as if it had 50k. Bone stock aside from exhaust. Loaded, leather, Onstar, Bose 6 disc, etc. Basically every option offered. It listed for $52k or somewhere in the ballpark. RCD 6" lift with Cognito UCA's. 35" Procomp X-MT's on Moto Metal 20's. I lifted it a year and a half ago and replaced idler, pitman, ball joints, etc then. It is a truck and is used as such. It is very nice but not showroom condition. There are a few dings, paint chips, tear in the drivers seat from sliding in and out. Again, sharp, gets tons of looks and compliments, but not perfect.

    I've ran a plow on it for the last 2 seasons. Last year it was used on only one lot and saw light use. This year it was a backup truck for plowing and saw maybe 3-4 storms. It was in the dealership for the coolant issue during the blizzard, and although I wish I had it, it was not used to plow during it. I dont feel that plowing hurts trucks, but I just wanted to stress that it has not been used much for plowing, even though it has had a plow on it. It's my personal truck, although I'll pull a trailer, haul a load, plow some snow, etc. It's a truck.

    Price is $19k. If I can't sell it, then so be it, I'll keep it around. I owe roughly $17k so I'm not walking away with much once its paid off. I am willing to work a plow in for a couple more grand, although I prefer to keep my plows. I can however work something out on an Unimount 8' pro or something.

    With some of the prices of used trucks on here, and Dmaxes on the internet in general, I'm blown away that there hasn't been any interest in this truck. It's no sweat, I love it, it's a great truck. I just really don't need to keep making the payment on something that I don't need whatsoever. I use my work trucks primarily because I don't mind working them and beating them up. It's nice to have it, if it were paid for I would keep it no questions asked. Anyone that wants to buy a truck to lift could save a crap load of money here. It's priced right in line with stock, same optioned trucks with similar miles, and has about $6k+ in extras.

    I think you need a lesson in used cars. Aftermarket rims = devalue price of truck. You like it doesnt mean everyone else will. Lift kit = devalue price of truck. Its unpratical is so many ways. Its plowed before = price devalued. 186k texas miles= price devalued you live in NW indiana. So your big toy that most people will look at as a Big toy that is completely useless and probably only get 13mpg if your luck and diesel is at 4+ a gallon = 15k if your lucky. Take off lift and tires and you maybe able to sell it. Your truck is unique and will only atract certain crowd and most want there own design. So you are going to own to own till it dies. Since you seem to be upside down on it. Loose the lift and it will be an easier sell

    I think you are 100% wrong. You need to check the market. You're starting the car dealer trade talk. Lifts and wheels are bad, till they go to sell it.

    For one, I'm FAR from upside down on it. I owe quite a bit less than my asking price. For 2 I could care less if it sells, I'm just surprised it hasn't. It's one of many trucks, and one that I don't really need anymore. If it sells I will likely just buy a new one in the near future anyway. I get burned out on vehicles and usually replace them every couple of years. For some reason this one has hung on for longer.

    3, It's far from useless. It pulls a trailer, hauls scrap, wood, etc, and plows snow when I need it to. All of the uses I've needed it for. 4, 13mpg's is funny. Unloaded on the highway usually averages low 20's, although multi use usually will see mid teens. Not 4cyl milage, but not horrible IMO. 5, TX miles do count in IN. Here we don't see much highway use with the hustle and bustle of the city. TX does......also, TX doesn't have winter salt, therefore this truck is 10x cleaner than any other 180k miled truck around here......my main point in making the statement. 6, get out of my ad if all you are here for is to bash it. You really need to meet me and know who I am before you continue making a fool out of yourself by judging me and my truck. You are the first person since I've owned it to have anything but good things to say about it. B/c it's not your cup of tea does NOT mean there's no market for such a thing. There are many people on this board that would love to have it.

    What do you drive by the way..........I assume it's not a "big toy" like my many useless vehicles?

    I mostly certainly Do drive a Big toy. No lift kit thought been burned on that before. Had banks saying no to people becuase they devalued truck and if the bank needs to repossed it. Guess who buys it. A car dealer that knows its a real tough sell. If you have the know how. Pull the lift kit off and sell it serperatly. And put back on the stock tires. As for mpg you speedo is probably way off from the over sized tires.

    Maybe I shouldnt have used word useless. But 99% of used truck buyers dont want a lifted one. You have your truck geared towards an age demographic of 18-28yr old man who wants a toy. So you see you are really hurting your market.

    As for lots wanting. Yeah ofcourse its cool looking. But most will tell you its not real work truck world useable. Plowing with it even takes a litle more skill becuase of the less visabilty and larger blind spots.

    As my toys. I owned a 98 Road King with a turbo on it and every last bit of chrome. Bought it brand new in 98 cost me 42k. I put thousands into replacing pitting chrome and endless repairs becuase of the turbo. I finally got sick of it and tried to sell. Got a bunch of dreamers and test riders. Finally went to a dealer and tried to trade it in. I was almost in tears on the amount the offered me. The sales mananger told me. Bike is useless with the turbo on it and would want to rebuild motor because of the extra strain. And wouldnt even put the turbo or the exhaust that cost me 7500 combined back on it. Because it would be a real hard sell. So I took off turbo and replaced exhaust with a Rinehart and sold turbo and exhaust for 3k and then bike sold.

    Also keep in mind that women have also have alot of say into what truck guys buy.

    I think what you don't realize is the hitch and bedrails are probably damn near the same height as his NON LIFTED '04 psd. I have friends with leveled (1.5" mind you, hardly a difference) '08 fords that sit the same as my dmax would with a 6" kit and 35s like Bill has... I have a friend who is on here actually that just traded in his truck and he got MORE on trade for the truck because of the lift and he plowed/towed with it the whole time he owned it..

    I understand drop hitches. But that truck is lifted 6 inches and it will hurt the sale. Not easy to get in and out of. unless your young. He has nice loaded truck that probably lived it life pulling a trailer or a camper. He took away that market when he lifted it. No wife is going to put up with climbing in and out it.

    Maybe he got more where you lived. Or he flubbed the number a lil. Keep in mind when buying a new truck there is a lot play in the numbers to make it look good.
