    I'm selling this truck. Figured this would make a good cheap plow truck for someone.

    All I'm getting is offers from guys in the area trying to get into the plowing industry. Potentially they want to become direct competition locally. The highest offer I recently received was for $2200. Willing to sell for $2000 to someone out of my service area. Firm on price. Just last attempt to sell before I Boss it up and have two back ups.

    Just curious. Thread jacking my own post, but are dodge gassers that shunned upon?!? Limited local interest and being set at a give away price makes me think. If it was a GM it would be gone in 60 seconds. Do people really have that bad of experience with 5.9 gassers???

    Engines great transfer terrible especially plowing heavy snow residential forward reverse with a load is really hard on them if I don't get any of the trucks I'm bidding on I'll gas up and go take a look if u still have it I'd be more interested if u had a plow on it getting close and no truck

    This truck would be in my driveway if you were a lot closer. I have Fisher mounts for it just sitting in the basement.

    5.9 is an amazing motor, The dodges don't hold their value for crap tho, so they are a hard sell. I had my blue one listed for 4k with the plow, it was mint, and still had a real hard time selling it. took over a month on craigslist to sell it.

    Sell it or did you put a plow on it? I sent a PM a few weeks ago and never heard back?
