My new truck :)

Well I FINALLY after 3 yrs got a truck i was happy with.

1500.00 [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

6.2L Diesel, TH400, 4.10 gears, NP208. BODY is in good condition, Previous owner was the USDA [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

wish it had a Full FLoater though [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] but I wont run anything bigger than 35's so its all good I guess.

Hey, not too shabby, it looks pretty damn good. Now all you need is those 35s you mentioned, maybe some wheels, and definately this:;sysid=SC02

It does look like a great place to start for a nice truck to keep. I'm glad there's still companies, or places that took care of them out there, like the USDA did with yours.

run the SF till it blows then find a FF. They are pretty cheap anyways then you can do disk brakes and all that fun stuff [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Nice straight truck though.

Re: My new truck :)

RIG is VERY CLEAN!! Inside out. Still has factory stickers in visor, warranty booklet in glove box lol. and other stuff you normally dont find in older vehicles.

Has 190,000 miles though [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] but ENGINE RUNS like a CHamp!! no stuttering etc. Very well taken care of. PO put a FUEL filter the size of a 3liter bottle on it.

190k is nothing to a well taken care of Detroit Diesel. I envy you man, you can't find a truck like that here (in Michigan) no matter how hard the owner tired to keep it nice. The Road Salt Monster eats them alive and spits them out. Only ones in good shape the owners want WAY to much for them.
