    I am considering trading my Topkick for a new truck, and thought I would offer it here first.

    1999 GMC Topkick. 7.4L gas, Allison automatic. A/C. 10' dump body. 10' Unimount plow, undertailgate salter. Central Hydraulics for the dump, plow and spreader. Corner strobes and roof strobe. Truck is in very nice condition and used everytime it snows as a salt truck. Hauls 12 yds. mulch in the summer, with sideboards. I am meticulous with my maintenance and this truck will not disappoint. As for the comments on the gas motor, I have no issues with it. Simple, starts everytime, and cheap to run vs. a diesel with plenty of power. But this is not a daily driver for my company. 126K miles. I will have a guy who plows with me hopefully get pics up today. Asking $12.5K. Located in Chicago NW suburbs. Truck is black/gray interior.

    Thank you. Forgot to mention it is the 26K GVW. Tires are also great shape, and are 22.5".

    The ad said the transmission was an Allison automatic. It most likely has hydraulic brakes with a 26K GVWR. (9000lb. or 10000lb. +17500lb. axles)

    Yes, the truck is a 6500. It has hydraulic brakes and stops awesome, in my opinion. It is 26K GVW. It is in VERY nice condition. As I said origianlly, I can promise this truck will not disappoint. I am simply needing to move on with a new one as it is time for me as I usually keep trucks for 5 years and replace them. This was my first foray into the medium duty market and has been an awesome money maker for me. To the people who have PM'd me for more pics, please let me know what more you would like to see, and I will be happy to provide them. I wish I knew how to post here but I cannot seem to grasp it. The truck is as clean as it looks. I take all my trucks to the detail shop after storms. I am available to anyone who wants to PM me a phone number to discuss it. Plow works excellent, but we have only plowed with it twice, as it was a dedicated salt truck for us. Thanks for looking.

    Bump. This truck is in incredibly great shape, 12.5k seems like way too low

    I still have the truck. This price listed here was for a quick sale in the spring. At this point I might just keep it for this coming season. Or put it up for sale the end of October.
