for the 91 he wants $1000!

really want the 4x4 but then i didn't have the intercoolr. also wasn't real fond of shortin up the bed. :?

any words of wisdom? :P


Does it snow where you live? If it does, then a 2wd dually won't move. I know from personal experience. 180K miles on these trucks is nothing, many of them last past 500K, and I have seen a couple in the million mile club. If you want to have a high hp rig, then you will need an intercooler eventually, but many people use 7.3 Powerstroke intercoolers so thats not a big deal.

$500 for that Non I/C rig is a hell of a deal. Go out there and get it. Actually... take $1500 out of the bank, and buy both of those suckers. I bet you could sell them for a whole lot more than hes asking, if you fix 'em up a little.

great! i guess the biggest challenge will be finding the bed and rears, after that , the fun begins!

i thought about gettin both trucks, but don't want have to many progects sittin around.

if you know any body that has either bed or rears i'd be happy to hear from them.

and i'm sure this won't be the only questian i have! thanks for all the input :wrench:
