    Looks like a solid deal, I would.

    Just make sure that all the sparkplugs are good, and non are helicoiled

    I have seen this truck before, think it was on craigslist and has been on there for awhile. Looks nice in pics.

    You can pull more money from that plow. I sold an 8' er in the middle of the summer for $1500 plowside.

    Bought the truck? Sounds more like you stole it, for that price. Great find and deal!

    From the pic and the details, it sounds like an awesome buy. Good luck with it.

    Rough start with this beast
    Truck overheated on the way home going up the Blue mountain
    Let it cool down and came back an hour later with my trailer
    sorry about the poor pics

    I got it shut down fast enough, there wasnt any damage, good opportunity for a coolant flush

    Probably just from driving it with the plow on? Good luck

    Yeah I wouldn't really be overly worried about that especially if you shut it down quickly.

    Maybe upgrade the fan clutch.

    Wow.

    Great Buy!!! You'll really like the V10 for plowing. Not so much for fueling though (at least that's MY only gripe)

    Congrats!

    i am with the guy who said it probably over heated cause of the plow still on the front, take it off and run it see how it does
