    well, i got a new truck, so my 89 has to go. it has a running problem. im a certified mechanic, i got nothin. i took it to a local parts/repair shop that i really trust, they got nothin. it runs ( a little rough) and drives, but after a short time it spits and sputters and acts like its on 2 cylinders. but sometimes will smooth right out. i know it will need a new gas tank. and probably lines/sending unit/ pump. has new filter, and i replaced computer and spark module.
    350/700r4/unknown tcase
    i know 4 wheel works, has ok interior
    has decent tires, supposedly around 70,000 on rebuild of motor but i got no papers. not very rusty, front fenders are rusted under the flares, and bottom of tailgate is rusty but still works great. has a conventional 7'6" western plow (cable op) works great, i only got to push snow with it once, but it operates fine.

    id like a unimount or other quick mount setup of same size for my 98 chevy 1/2 ton. the plow on the 89 is bolted and welded on, i have no time to remove it. plus i dont want the frame on year round.
    i may sell outright, not sure on a price yet. would much rather trade for a newer plow for my truck

    if you would separate i would take the blade and the undercarrage. i have a chevy dump of the same vintage with an underhood pump but the blade is shot.

    would be too much work to separate (for me) its welded to the frame
