    The good:
    - Strong 400 engine. Doesn't burn any oil.
    - Fairly recent paint.
    - Lots of new parts, including most of the u-joints, new hubs, new flex plate, new brakes (front), new wheel bearings (front).
    - Has had some major rust repair, including nice repair on passenger cab corner, new bed. Front end is in great shape.
    - Plow is in very good shape.
    - Has 2 sets of tires, both with good tread. Winter tires are 33x12.50 Futura (pep boys brand) tire with plenty of tread. Winters are Cooper Discoverers and they are studdd.

    The bad:
    - The transmission is gone. This has a TH350 transmission. I have priced used ones at around $100-$150. Or, you can get a rebuilt for around $500.

    The ugly:
    - There needs to be some additional rust repair on the driver's side cab corner and rocker panel. It WILL need this done to pass inspection. Or, you can just leave it if you are going to use it for a yard truck.

    I just upgraded to a '99 Silverado, so rather than replace the transmission on my old truck I am going to let it go. This truck started every single day last winter (even on days my wife's Subaru wouldn't) and was my daily driver. I used it only to plow my own drive and drive to work in the winter. This summer I used it primarily to haul trash to the dump, etc.

    I will email pictures to anyone who is interested.

    Make me an offer.

    I can also get a decent deal on an installed transmission if someone prefers to buy it that way.
