    Used this truck the last two years, I believe it needs a transfer case and a bit if brake work. Has a nice 7-6 Western cable plow, rotating roof lights, snow ex 1075 with the controller and swing away mount. The salter worked last winter, but I think I have a loose connection at the plug now. Good bed, bed liner. With minimal work it's a great starter or a backup. Or part it out. Has a good 350 engine and the 400 trans was rebuilt 2 years ago when I bought the truck.newer battery, shocks, etc. $2,000 CASH. Builder630@yahoo.com

    Are the cab corners rotted out? Looks like the cab is about 8 inches lower than it should be.

    Correct, need the driver mount. It's no show truck, I used it to plow and pull my boat.

    I had a cab mount rot out like that. I just lifted the cab and welded a 1/4" plate to the top of the mount. Drilled a hole in it and boom, all fixed.

    It's really easy to do and I would recommend doing it so it looks a little better.

    I agree, I have plenty of steel and a couple welders here, I just have other things occupying my time. If I don't sell the truck I'll prob weld it up in the spring and just keep the truck on an account property.
