    Hi First time posting. Im looking at a k5 for sale here in my area with the 6.2 diesel. It runs awsome but the body is bad. How much would you pay for a truck like this? My plan is to drive it through this winter and then pull the motor out and put it in my Jeep J-20. The guy is asking $1000 but I talked him down to $800. What do you guys think?:thinking:

    84, 85 M1009 68,000 miles average between $1,200 -$1,700.00 winter they go up. If I was there and guy had truck at that price if motor was good it would be mine now!!!

    One reason im a little sceptical about it is that he says its a 89 but it doesn't have the serpentine belt setup, its a V belt. And its a GM Goodrich engine so its not original, and he has no idea how many miles are on it. Theres about 156k on the truck. And like I said before its a rust bucket.

    My '89 Jimmy (with original motor) still uses the V-belt set up. Also '89 diesels still used the older SI altenators while the gas motors had already switched to the new CS style.

    Yeah, I was checking those out earlier. There are a couple not not to far from here that are marked "rebuilt AUG. 05"
