1 ton 4x4 - looked at today

Just throwing out a bunch of my thoughts...

Well got to go see the beast he had for sale...
How come it always sounds better over the phone?
He forgot to mention the truck is a dually...
- Has 126k miles, 6.2/4-speed/NP205 Dana 60 lock outs/14 bolt 4.10 gears
- Is the front dana 60 on a dually different that a normal 1 ton?

Whats wrong:
- The back driver side main leaf is snaped, front drive shaft the CV is frozen, needs rockers, front driver inner frender, rear quaters, brake work and exhaust work, couldn't drive the truck becuase it has a bad tank of gas...he was running it out of a 5 gal pail, started right up and ran ok...
Whats good:
- Has an '86 suburban 6.2 engine with ~80k miles, new starter, one glow plug is broken off, re-cored radiator, new driver side fender, ok tires, will deliver the truck for $50 and will take $2k

Orginally I had thought about putting the entire drivetrain into my M715 truck when the body died...but with it being a dually I don't think that would would, the 6.2 diesel would still be nice for the 715

With some work it would make one heck of a tow vechile, but proably should walk away and wait until I can find a 1 ton non-dually.

I think you just answered your own question. If you still want an outside opinion, wait until you find what you want.

I've heard the dually front 60's cost more than it's worth to convert them to a non-dually hub. Some utility trucks came with a single wheel setup and in my paper, those are in a differnt section. I'd keep looking.
