    As you can see I have put a lot of time and money into this truck. My goal was to make it an excellent tow rig, extremely reliable, while improving MPG. Truck has Magnaflow 4’’ stainless steel exhaust, 3’’ stainless downpipe, Gauges EGT, Boost, Trans temp, 6.0 front intercooler with 3’’ intercooler pipes and early 1999 superduty spider manifold. 6 position chip with economy and tow tunes. Stage 1 160cc injectors, glow plugs, Intake, and fully built trans with 2 large coolers. Every piece of fuel line, PS line, Coolant hose, and oil lines including the High Pressure hoses have been replaced. Motor also has a Leece Neville 270 amp alternator; it will be the last alternator you ever buy. Truck has pwr windows, door locks, slider rear window, and 40/20/40 front seat
    The first owner lived in NJ and commuted to PA and is responsible for 90% of the 230,000 highway miles put on the truck. It has been extremely well maintained. Oil every 3k miles and fuel filter every 6k, Power Service fuel treatment at every fill up. Oil and filters have just been changed about 100 miles ago.
    Tires & Rims have less then 3k miles on them. The Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revos are the best E rated tire I could find. Just look at the reviews on TireRack. I upgrade to stainless steel lug nuts with locks and SS valve stems. Also have 4 steel wheels with E-rated tires for snow.
    I love this truck but need a CC for camping with older parents. I’m selling at an extreme loss. I also have parts for a rear disk conversion and a Dana 60 for the front. If you are interested we can work some thing out. Truck has a modified title.
    The plow is a Western PRO 8.6 it was only used to plow my driveway and my parents, about 250’ in total. The truck has never been used as a commercial plow truck and I remove the plow as soon as im done with it.
    With plow $10,500.00
    Without $ 9,000.00
    Plow $1700.00
