Must sell my truck... got f---ed
With much sadness, I must sell my truck. I got stabbed in the back at work, and I can't make the payment. The truck is a '97 F-250 5 speed with Dana 60 conversion. Truck has professionally installed goosneck hitch and black rubber bed mat. New F-350 springs and shackles, and Warn premium all-metal locking hubs, new National wheel bearings, and new calipers (all parts put on Dec 28th). New Monro Magnum shocks in the front, and new pittman arm-to-passenger side tie rod (MOOG). Truck has a 3" stainless downpipe that goes into a 4" stainless exhaust and chrome tip (Jardine Engineering exhaust). I just put a set of standard sylvania silverstars in it 2 weeks ago. New Studded snow tires with approximately 5K driven on them. I will also include with the truck my deep aluminum diamond plate Tractor Supply toolbox, and the new Dieselsite coolant filtration kit with filter shutoff valves, 203* thermostat, Caterpillar Coolant Flush, 3 gallons of Caterpillar ELC concentrate, and 4 gallons of Caterpillar ELC 50/50 (I haven't had a break in the weather to do the flush).
I have oil analysis for 2 of the 4 oil changes i've done, and I have the samples for the other 2 I just haven't mailed in yet but have the exact mileage intervals for them. In the warm months I run Rotella T 15W40, cold months Rotella T6 5W40. I run a 5K interval even though Blackstone says I can do 8K or more, and the current T6 oil in the engine has 2K on it. No leaks anywhere on the truck. Truck is at 151K and change. I will also include two bottles of Ford Limited Slip additive for a rear diff fluid change. Front diff has new all-synthetic fluid in it.
I'm asking 10K, as I currently owe 10.5K on the loan after New York's anal-probe sales tax, title, registration, and plate costs added up to more than 2K to get the truck on the road. I feel like this is a fair price given the gear coming with it. Lowballers will have to wait as I have enough money to cover the payment on this truck for another 3 months, and once it gets back to NY, a rust-free truck is a desirable commodity in the salty hills of the land of Hopey Change.
PM me if interested.
