Default 10k diesel truck

I'm looking for a 3/4 or 1 ton diesel and have roughly $10k to spend, I've been looking at 200k 6.6 duramax trucks, any suggetsions, I've heard the allisons last nearly forever but I'm not sure about the duramax motors.

No one should buy manual windows in 2015 for a daily driver.

What's wrong with manual windows? That's one less electrical problem.

fuuuuuuck a 200k mile Dmax. (fuck any Dmax IMO)

The Allison is alright in stock form.

I've got an '01 7.3 ECLB 4x4 lariat that's ugly as ball sack, but only has 169k on it, no blowby, cold AC, cruise, 4wd, etc. all work. fresh trans 50k ago. runs/drives great. It's not all hammered up, but it's gold and has a white bed on it.

It has brand new tires on it.

I'll take $6k for it as it sits.

I can't do the OBS trucks... they're just old as fuck at this point.

and manual windows fucking suck.

I've had ONE... ONE power window fail out of 50+ vehicles and 22yrs of driving. It cost me $20 to fix.

340k on my 05 LLY Duramax and so far so good... But I also have a 00 F350 7.3 with 500k on it. Only put in 5 injectors and a HPOP so far.

My dads 07 LMM has almost 400k on it. Never had a mechanical issue, minus normal wear and tear items.

my biggest problem with the GM's is that the trucks are fucking junk...

I'll concede that Dodges are probably even shittier, but at least the engines are simple and easy to work on.

Sad truth right there. Hell, I can't remember the last time I saw one rolling down the road.



My 7.3 has been quite honestly, amazing. I treat it like complete shit and keeps on trucking without a hiccup. Gets decent mileage and will practically run on anything remotely oil based. Lol

they're all over the place down here, but they are seriously fucking junk...

they're like fox bodies or civics... they're the penultimate of the diesel ricer scene, so they just get fucking trashed. it doesn't help that the trucks are fucking junk and literally fall apart

I've had a bunch of them, but I always take care of my vehicles, so I started and finished with nice trucks for the most part.

But the prices on nice 12v's is fucking insane now. You can get ten times the truck with half the miles for the same price in a Ford.

It's in West Columbia, TX, and we've just got it sitting at the shop pulling lunch run and local parts run duty at the moment.

We're shopping it to local farmers and such at the moment. No ad or pics. I have a few on my phone.

It's NOT a pretty truck. It's grandpa gold with faded paint on the roof with a white bed on it.

A buddy of mine actually has a gold bed that's two-tone w/ black on the bottom.

If the truck doesn't sell by pure walk-in/word of mouth here in a couple weeks, he said he'd swap me beds and do the R&R for next to nothing.

At that point, I'll take an eraser wheel and take the Florida snowbird edition graphics off the doors, hose the truck off, and put it on ebay for $6500.

I'll actually take less than $6k as it's currently got an open title. As soon as I put it in my name, price goes to $6k.

It's ugly as a fat girl's ass crack, the seats don't recline (the driver seat is in a comfortable position though!), the rear door latches are all fucked up, the paint is worn through to primer on the roof, and it's in West Columbia, TX.

If you're seriously interested in it after that sales pitch, I suppose I can take/text a few pics.

I'm not trying to waste anybody's time... ESPECIALLY mine

but it's a solid fucking truck. I drove it home with the cruise set at 70 and the AC on frosty

Old man bought it in 03 with 24k miles on it and pulled his travel trailer with it. He maintained the mechanical stuff very well. 4wd works perfect, engine doesn't have blowby, transmission is great. Truck goes down the road straight, steers and stops perfect, etc.

I thought about keeping it just because it's such a solid truck that hasn't been all fucked over and mistreated. But motherfuck me it's ugly, and I'm a sucker for turning a profit

the huge leg-up that it has... at least around here... is that it only has 169k on it and not 369k like every other 7.3 on Craigslist
