'95 GMC K2500 4x4
Buddy of mine bought it brand new just to tote his dragster from race to race. He got it with the tow package and a class V hitch, tranny cooler, trailer brake, etc. etc. But it didn't have the stones for what he needed. So I got it for almost half price with only 6k miles on it.
Its got 170k on it now and still looks good, runs/drives great, and tows my boat like it ain't even there.
“87” Dodge Dakota w/ 8’ bed. I bought it brand new for $9,116.00 from a fleet manager. It’s had 2 engines, 4 transmissions, 1 rear end, 4 water pumps, 3 starters, 2 fuel pumps, 3 coils, 3 radiators and endless other goodies. I particularly liked when a voltage regulator fried out every bell, light and whistle in the old gal. The only payment I make on her is $53 a month for insurance
Before moving to Maryland I did a very detailed underbody coating on it. She’s my pride and joy and I didn’t want my baby to rust. She looks damn good for her age but I would like a newer truck with an 8 foot bed. A van would be nice but my next vehicle will be for business, and personal use. I don’t think Stevie likes paint fumes LOL.
Work out of 2001 1 ton cube fan with box's on 1 side. Have a 96 3/4 ton 4 x 4 with snow plow. IMO you need 2 vehics 1 to work out of and cary tools and 1 to haul material when necessary. If I do a deck or basement I need my 4 x 4 to bring my dump trailer to the back of the house for clean up of supply materials. Not to take this thread in a different direction but is dumpster rentals getting out of hand or what. I bought my dump trailer last summer because the roll off dumpsters were getting out ragous. Here you pay $475 for a 20yd. with 5 day rental, after 5 days it's $5 a day. Alot of the larger companies are buying their own trucks and cans.
I have one just like that. Except mine has clothes hanging from it. LOL
My get around toy is a 2001 Dodge Ram. Love it!! Love it so much just spent $2400 to replace the Tranny that just went out on it. (54,000 oringinal miles) WHAT A DEAL!!
