Description: Hate to do it, but I am making some life changes and my little girl has to go. She is a factory 5.7 diesel pickup with T400 transmission and gear vendors overdrive. 3:73 posi rear end. Lowered the correct way with drop spindles and relocated leaf spring brackets.

This truck has only 72,000 original miles. Every part has been gone through and rebuilt or replaced so I won't bother to list unless I know you are serious. I have all receipts. I am a professional diesel mechanic.

Only rust on the truck is the battery trays and a small spot under the front of the hood. Cab is perfect. Don't be turned off that this has the Oldsmobile diesel. It has ARP head studs and has been meticulously maintained. It is also the DX block which is every bit as reliable as the 6.2 diesel that replaced it. I have recent compression results. I have driven this truck for 7 years with this diesel and got 20 miles to the gallon doing it!

The only flaw on the paint is above the rear driver tire and fender well. Chain came off this winter and scratched the paint. No dents and no bondo on this truck.

I am asking $7,500 OBO. If you are going to chop the truck up or use it for parts, don't bother asking. This is a survivor.
