Looks like I won the bid on this 97 gmc 1 ton dump truck/plow combo. It only drove around 200 miles in the last few years. And it sat every summer never moving. It's sad really, but other than that 6.5 I can fix alot of it. And I have a tranny already, just need to swap it from 2wd to 4wd. Gotta talk to a transmission guy. Wink I didn't pay much either, bought it real right. I think anyway.

51000 miles It does run nice, no skiping on sputtering. Did have to ether it because it was cold (didn't plug it in)
6.5 diesel (ugh)
Blown tranny
Rust is pretty heavy
Body holes
Needs pass side rocker

New tires
New battery's
New alternator
Plow is in super shape

Actually I was the only bidder, it's pretty ruff, but If the frame is ok, after I sand blast it, will make a great shop truck. My poor duramax quad cab has had enough plowing. And I need something to haul junk caprice parts to the scrap yard.

That's too bad no one bothered to wash the salt off of that, but I'm eager to see how your sandblasting turns out on the frame, etc., it should be interesting for sure and would be nice to give that truck a second chance at life, as well as give others hope and helpful hints on what to do with their rustbuckets, lol.


I don't think I've seen a GMT400 that new needing rockers before. Was that a municipal truck? When I worked for my city it was appalling how they treated some of their vehicles. And these were the same idiots complaining that they weren't getting paid enough and that taxes needed to be raised...while driving an F350 at 30 MPH into a granite curbstone onto a lawn because they found it amusing... Surprised

It was owned by a golf course, the rocker rusted out because of the control for the dump body.

I don't know if they always owned it or if it was municipal.

If that is an HD with the lower bumper and the thicker frame, it's a great truck.

My boss had two of those trucks working for years and they never got stuck ONCE, they were both two wheel drives and he and his employees that drove them never complained about the 6.5.


I do like that you're sparing your Dmax's life by not plowing with it anymore. That truck would be a shame to waste! Arrow
