    Well the guy can't spell. But I'd take $3800 cash and drive it home. I never pay asking price. 35k miles? Id find out why such low miles.

    yea i know the low mile makes me wonder but it looks clean has new brake lines it just needs a new back bumper. i figure the plow alone can fetch $2500 with wiring and mounts if i paint it. somewhere around $3800 mark would be a good deal. all it needs is a bumper $200???? and complete take apart and pain tof the plow which will be a good little project!

    Knowing the frame is bad could you get the truck cheap and part it out?

    I had the exact same experience.

    Called two different guys about two different trucks. Both said the frames were "CLEAN, man !" Drove 3 hours on the one and 2.5 on the other. Both trucks had rotted out frames, and the one truck was so bad that it was completely unsafe to be underneath. The top of the c-channel frames were GONE !


    Stupid bastards wasted my time. I guess I'm not alone....:realmad:

    Yea from what I saw it looked very clean aside from cab corners to be honest plow was only on it for 8 months and was a mm2. Didn't get to drive it though but definitely needed a bumper haha. Could have been wrong but did have surface rust underneath more in the rear than the front.

    yea underneath was almost gone. that particular plow may have only been on it for 8 months but it must have a sander and sat a lot. the plow was in bad shape for a mm2.

    Yea plow definitely needed work front end looked decent compared to the back. I don't think he had it very long and didn't really give much info.
