    The truck is going to get worked on tomorrow, so I brought the plow home on the trailer due to the 1.5 hour ride home. I just didnt want to beat up the front end or put extra weight on the brakes, since it is not inspected I didnt want to chance anything.

    Paid $6,700 - Im sure it needs $1500 or more in work, but I feel it will be worth it

    The truck has a cat 3116 in it with 6 speed manual with a two speed rear

    Around 53,000 miles, ex municipal truck, newer bed, monroe 10' plow monroe SS spreader, it even came with a CB

    Its no show winner, just strictly a work truck

    Yes I did, from a small excavating company, before that it belonged to Westfall Township

    Sounds like you saw it around? Or on Craigslist a few months back?

    Cool, I hope it works out for me, I took a chance on it, since it hasnt been driven much in the last 2 years, its been in the shop all day and part of tomorrow, hopefully they get all the odds and ends fixed up.
