    I got this from a small dealer about 2 years ago. It's got 130k on it now. It was a bit older than what the dealer normally sells but was in such great shape they put it on the lot. They replaced the oil cooler lines, brake lines (rust resistant), steering box and new battery before sale. I hope to have a used 8' Fisher for it by the end of the month. It's headed into the shop tomorrow for a once over and some routine stuff to make sure nothing needs attention prior to the winter or plow install. I debated trading it for something newer 04-06ish 60-80k. with less miles but this appears to be in better shape underneath than most of the trucks I've crawled under, plus no payments come January.

    8600? Is that the price or motor. I didnt know GM made a 8600... Probably the 8100. Anyway, great looking truck! Hope everything works out for you.

    Nice truck, I had one just like it. I sold it 5 years ago with 54k miles. Mine was silver and had an 8' MM1 HD.

    No it only has 1 battery, unknown if it used to have 2 or not. I was debating having another one installed with the plow. I was going to see what they suggested. Good to see a similar truck with high miles!!!!!! I like it, mine runs great only a few very minor electrical annoyances that do not affect how it runs or operates.
