    I am looking to buy a backup truck and plow. I have no preference on make, model etc... Anything from a 1/2 ton to a 1 ton Dually it doesn't matter! As long as it runs and is road worthy (or able to be made road worthy) it will be rarely used if at all I just don't like not having a back up to out 3 main trucks!
    PM or post with what you have! You can email me at lx277@yahoo.com with pictures!

    Rust means nothing either...Minnesota has no annual inspections on vehicles!

    I have a 90 Dodge 3/4 ton with a Western Uni-mount. Truck is road worthy now and runs and plows well. Some rust but no basket case. $3500

    Just the typical areas. About an inch or so across the top of the rear wheel wells, very bottom of the rockers and front fenders ect. It is still pretty solid. Has good tires on aluminum rims. Runs and shifts good. The lights, heat, wipers, radio, ect. all work. Plow was just serviced, along with a tune up and oil change. Has a class 3 hitch and a break control box too. Located in Detroit.

    I will have a 95 Regular cab 1/2ton Chevy with plow for sale, but probably not in time for you. Looking to finish out the winter with it as a back up. 4750 for the set up.
