    Im relisting this truck that I had on this site this spring. It listed before for 7000 and had a few offers for more than Im asking now but need to get rid of it. Its a good plow truck. It has 117000 miles on it. It was used for 5 plow seasons in Michigan. It was also my daily driver. I am the second owner, I bought it in 2000. It has a 360 gas V8, auto trans, 4X4. It is the SLT trim if anybody cares. It has decent tires BFG all terrains, gripped good in the snow last year. It has a solid western unimount on it 7.5 proplow. I might be able switch out the old joystick control for a new handheld one if buyer wishes. Still runs and drives well. Phone # 989-239-3554

    It is pretty mechanically sound, I won't lose any sleep selling it to somebody, especially for $4500. I was going to sell it to my brother in law (until he lost his liscense for $3500 with out the plow). It hasn't used oil,I started running mobile 1 synthetic after about 60,000 miles. It is in pretty good shape, it was my daily driver until this spring. Unfortunately it has sat most of the time since then, had to recharge the battery it sat so long. It is in better shape than most of the plow trucks around here. Havent had any trouble with the tranny, knock on wood. One time I thought it was bad but it ended up being a shift sensor. It probably could use front + rear diff fluid change as well as tranny fluid change. I ussually do that in the fall before snow flies.

    Well I think $4500.00 is a very good price. I have seen trucks that are in worse shape going for more. I'm building a house right now and if you havent watched the news it was a bad time to do so...lol. I had this truck listed for $7000 and had offers over $4500.00 so I figured this would be a quick sale. Anyway here are some more pics.
