Have only towed my mustang on a flat trailer with this truck a few times. Never taken offroad. No drips/leaks/noises of any kind. I treat this truck like it was my own child.I really take pride in my vehicles and having them mechanically sound and look as good as they run. Just flushed tranny and installed new trans filter and trans cooler line fitler. Oil changed every 5000 miles. Have run a synthetic blend oil since purchsed. Oil was just changed 100 miles ago as well as both fuel filters. . No accidents, clean title, 27,000
Price is firm. Truck blue books around 28 without any mods. I know what these trucks go for used as i have had a few of them. Really dont need to sell the truck. If you need more pictures or videos of anything feel free to ask. This truck if bought by the right person who will maintain it like i have will be reliable for years to come.. It has been a great truck to me and i am sad to see it go.
TTT. Have a local guy having it inspected tomorrow. I will let you guys know the results of the mechanic inspction. However something about the funds not coming from his insurance from a totalled vehicle for 2 weeks so in the mean time still for sale.
I have a local guy interested whom took the truck and paid to be inspected by a diesel mechanic (so only for you guys its like having a free inspection). The mechanic looked over everything and came back with only 3 things:
1.) An oil leak (HOWEVER there is not really an oil leak! when you change the oil cooler as i did you lose quite a bit of oil down the back of the motor so thats what that was. I cleaned it up this weekend and will be taking it in to be reinspected)
2.) The rubber on the carrier bearing is worn.($20 part to replce and affects the driving/handing, performance of the truck in no way).
3.) He said that my transmission shifts to smooth? Which i do not understand because the tranny shifts firm and great under all conditions. Have never noticed slipping, smells, high trans temps. So i'd say the tranny is perfect.
Only 3 things he said on the ENTIRE truck guys! I will report back after the reinspection. If interested please feel free to pm me.
Just got home from the diesel mechanic. They put it up on a 4 point and got it in the air..... Guess what no oil leaks anywhere. Took him for a ride and showed him the firm shifts. I am not sure if he knows much/anything about innovative tuning but he was trying to tell me it should shift HARD. I don't think people would use eric at innovative if the tunes made their truck shift hard. Anyways. This is a clean truck, recently inspected and ready to be parked in your driveway oil leak free
