This is an opportunity for someone to acquire an incredible tow vehicle for a cash bargain price and their sweat equity.
 
I bought this truck in December of 2006 from the original owner in Raymond, WA for $19,900 with 62,000 miles.  I found the ad on craigslist and I still have a copy of it with his original window sticker!  It was my daily driver and tow vehicle for the travel trailer.
 
I wrecked the truck October 29thon 405 on my way home from work.  State Farm chose to “total it” and I bought it back to rebuild. My plans have changed. This truck is way too good to be a donor and deserves to be rebuilt.  It is a 6-speed HO diesel with “Marine” injectors, a 4" stainless exhaust and approximately 126,000+ miles. The previous owner put in a “South Bend” clutch and the injectors along with all the towing equipment (Electric Brake controller, exhaust brake, EGT Gauge, Turbo Boost gauge, Digital fuel pressure gauge, upgraded trailer wiring harness & Firestone air bags on rear). He pulled a 5th wheel trailer and his wife drove it a lot on their trips. They sold their 5th wheel and bought a diesel pusher motor home, so it was time to say goodbye.   I removed and sold the 5th wheel hitch and auxiliary 50 gallon fuel tank. The truck delivers 23 mpg empty on the highway and 15 mpg pulling our #8000 travel trailer cruising at 1,800 rpm at 60 mph.  The combined highway and city use averages 17 mpg.  The trip computer will confirm it.
 
In 2009 I installed a rebuilt VP44 injector pump and a FASS DDRP lift pump relocated on the frame rail. In the last 18 months I installed new Bilstein rear shocks, rebuilt the brakes (I did the front and Midas in Bothell did the rear) the exhaust system, 4 new Michelin 265/75/R16 LTX tires, the hydraulic clutch assembly was replaced and a new extreme duty rear bumper from Texas (4" pipe & diamond plate) that I notched for the draw bar.  The canopy is a Leer with good glass and both side “Windoors” that fully open allowing complete access to the bed contents from the sides.  I have two sets of keys and remotes for everything.
 
I have 2 mounted (on matching alloys) Bridgestone Blizzak snow tires that cost over $500.00 with the receipt and almost $800.00 at cost in new maintenance items (filters, oil, hoses, belts, brake pads, etc.) including a add-on 60 horsepower timing kit (never installed, never felt the need) that will go with the deal.
 
It needs, at first glance, both fenders, a hood, bumper assembly, grille, radiator and windshield that are locally available for $2,000 or less. And the core support will need to be pulled out.  All the lights are intact and the air bags did not deploy!  The A/C system will need repairs also. There maybe hidden damage and frame work needed. The engine runs and it can drive onto a trailer, but no farther (no coolant).  Potential buyers can see it in my driveway. 
 
I understand the average blue book for the truck is $11,000.00 running & driving, without any of the options I have described. I want $6,000.00 for it as is, where is.   I have a rebuilt title, so I believe no WSP inspection will be necessary, but don’t quote me on that.
