    Hi All,

    I sold my 99 Ram 1500 and was looking to replace with a better condition truck. All it will be used for is home depot / dump runs, winter duty.

    I picked up this 1999 GMC Sierra 1500 which is in pretty good shape. It seems to have had some kind of light duty plow, can anyone id the mounts?

    The truck does need some work:
    -Surface rust on rockers
    -Drivers seatbelt does not come out (any advice here is appreciated)
    -Odometer, Gear selection display doesn't work-- I just removed, cleaned and re-installed and it works! hopefully it doesn't go out with the first bump i go over.
    -Needs tires
    -I'd like to replace wheels, not a fan of chrome. wish 2500 wheels would fit...

    that's a Blue Ox mount. Not a Snowplow a towbar. I'd say someone towed that behind a motorhome.

    X2 on ^^^^

    I wonder how many tow miles?

    Is that even a 4x4?

    Thanks for the responses.

    Yes the truck is 4x4; it has 170,000 miles.

    I have no idea how much this truck was towed.

    Guys like the 4x4s so they can use the transfer case's neutral when towing.

    Makes sense.
