New guy from Kentucky
I just picked up a 2wd 95 PSD (5-speed) to tow my 93 Lightning race-truck to/from the track.
This is the first diesel I've ever had. It has 189k and bought it off Ebay for $2900. Truck seems to be in fair shape. Couple of little odds & ends that need addressing, but nothing major. Needs tires, new windshield & clutch pedal bushing. Do you think I got a good deal,....or did I get hosed?
I bought this truck to replace my (my wife's actually) 03 F-150 supercharged Harley. I was towing around 6500lbs (not including full gear in the bed), and it was stressing it quite a bit,......not to mention only getting 9-10mpg while in tow. Also,....I'm looking at buying an enclosed trailer sometime in the future and I knew that my F-150 simply wouldn't be up to the task. Weight of trailer w/ vehicle & gear inside will be around 9k.
Any suggestions,......... ?
