    $7000-7500. Ball joints, front end, Motor needs to be pulled for oil pan replacement, or fiberglass pan cover installed.

    yea ? 7k ? wow thats low to me I was thinking more along the 10k figure


    tell me more about the fiberglass cover for the pan

    its not shot at all it just looks rusty I knocked on it and its sounds strong and thick although some rust peeled off when I did that

    150K with lots of surface rust, a meyer plow, and an oil pan that needs attention...plus other stuff you can't see. $7000-$7500. Its a 12 yr old plow truck thats going to need work to get it to the next 150K.

    Surface rust is under body only I didn't think it had 150k from looking at it on the outside first

    Maybe I should stick with dodge diesel again.
