    I no longer need this big of a truck and need to sell it. It's a 1979 IH, has a 10' boss vee plow with new formed cutting edges ($550.00), a monroe tailgate spreader (like new), new floor in dump box 3/16 thick (just paid $1,500 to have this done). Tires are in really good shape, dt466 engine runs great, unit was completely serviced last fall (coolant flush, filters, grease, checked over) has the allison auto which works fine, also all brake lines and master cylinder have been repalced. The only problem with the truck is the steering box needs to be replaced (I am looking for one as of now because the truck is still in use) Asking 8,500 for it or a reasonable offer I also have more pics if intrested

    I like that a lot. I didn't know the hoods were interchangeable. Good luck with the sale.

    ok, so today I had a guy look at the steering. It had air in the system, so he bled it and added more fluid and it seems to be working fine now.

    Dump Truck

    Mr Boss Plow Guy,
    I also have an International dump truck, much like yours only it's a 1984. I have been going back and forth on purchasing a pickup with a plow or buying a plow for the dump truck. My friend who has commercial snow removal accounts (various sizes), is trying to get me to be on standby for his accounts as well as the promise of some of my own. I would like to use my dump, since I already own it, but everyone is telling me it is too large. Is this your experience with parking lots? Also would you sell just the plow? and if so how much?
