    nice truck

    I was close to buy one like that but no dually for $400 but it was rusty. Never bought because my Dad say it junk.

    DId you check frame for crack? I heard they do due age and rust.


    It would last another 20 years of plow.

    What mpg you get with this? 17?

    I see alot of cracked frames behind the gas tanks on these trucks, but this one seems alright. When I get some extra time I plan on adding a brace to support the frame because there are some rusty spots that scare me.

    If I baby the truck I can get 10 mpg.....better than my 05 2500hd lol

    It all in how you drive.....in snow storms I will use a full tank and my father will only use 1/2 because he drives like an old man.
