    Funny you posted that. I saw it on craigslist today. I'm looking for a 3rd/ back up truck too.

    that is not a bad deal. plan on replacing all the brake lines, and possibly the gas tank. also, plan on all 4 ball joints, trans service, and a tune up. if you do the work yourself, figure $1000 to put it in good shape.

    Look for a cracked front axle. The E-60 isn't a bad plow, but you will probibly have to change the lift ram base seal a couple times a year (at least i had to on mine)
