My new truck

    New to me anyway.
    The company I work for has a silent auction on their trucks when it's time to replace them. Evidently, no one likes 1 ton trucks. I picked it up for $2,500.




    It's an 07 GMC Sierra 3500HD with 117k miles 4WD and the 6.0 gas in it.
    I've removed the graphics, and cleaned up the interior a bit. I'm scheduled to have a flatbed installed next Tuesday.

    I haven't decided yet, but I think I may be looking for a plow to put on it.

    I'm about 99% sure it'll get a plow. That way I can plow with this and use my S-10 as backup/small driveway rig.

    Not sure what plow to get though.

    I would either run a western mvp 8.6 or a boss power vee 9.2. Those are just my favorite two brands though.

    thats an amazing deal you got sir!
    i think a wetern v-plow would look good on that!
    you can tuck a couple bucks into the plow since you got a great deal on the truck!
    brand new or used plow?

    Although $5k already has me in profit, I'm gonna hold out... I'll consider anything above $10k, and $20k is a sure thing. :eek:
    Actually I'll drive it over the summer for sure, and maybe sell it for a good down payment on a brand new 2500hd. Or I may just keep it and drive the wheels off of it.

    Although I'd love to run a V on it, I have a hard time with the extra $ and weight.
    I don't need a super heavy duty 10' plow for what I do. Something long enough that I'm not running over my windrows when turning would be fine. I did the quick match thing on Western's site and it had like 20 models to choose from for this truck. Brand isn't too big of a consideration because there aren't any local dealers for anybody.
    When it comes to something like a plow, I usually buy new. It's worth it to me to not take the chance on buying someone elses nightmare, and I hate peicing something together. OTOH, I am kind of cheap. I refuse to spend $7k on a plow to do a few driveways.

    Hehehehe.... The auctions are only open to employees... But we may be able to make a deal.;)

    Nice deal, is the form rack on the side what came off the truck?

    Id look at a plow with a Poly V blade if you are worried about weight (on a 1 ton?)
