Buy or Run?
Okay, I am looking for opinions on this truck. I would like to get into a diesel for pulling power. I have a 8,000 non-FR trailer that maxs out my current truck. Trips would be less than 250 miles. How much life can I get out of a truck like this? Will it go another 25-50K?
Here is the ad:
I have for sale a 1995 6.5 L turbo diesel GMC Sierra, long box, extended cab, 4X4, this truck has a 5 speed manual transmission, runs great, 5th wheel plate, and tow package, power windows, power locks, a/c does not work, heat is great, this truck has had 3 owners all from the same family, 308,000 miles, regular maintenance recently replaced front brake pads and calipers, front brake lines, transfer case was replaced last spring, there is a tailgate but it does not work, I have used this truck every weekend for the past 7 years to tow my 18ft steel gooseneck horse trailer to shows, rodeos, and trail rides all over the WI, MN, and IA it has never left me stranded. You wont find a more reliable diesel pickup for this price. Only selling due to needing a larger pickup as we are buying a much larger trailer and have more people riding with us.
