    I just bought a reg. cab 2000 3500 4x4 SRW Older body style. My father is using it to pull his camper, and I will probobly use it to pull my sub. once i get/make a car trailer. It's got the 350, 4L80e setup, floor shift T-case. Only 55K miles on it. The hitch has never been used, not a scratch inside the reciever. The body is rough, but mechanically it's good. I just need to cut the front rotors and replace the calipers. She pulsates and pulls left a little when braking. It also has a western plow frame on it. Kinda thinking of taking it off, but also thinking of getting the rest of the plow. I was looking for an extended or crew cab, but the price was just too good to pass up, only $9K!

    I agree. Go with new rotors. Let me know if you are thinking of parting with the plow set up. I am sort of looking for one.

    Once I get the truck in the air at work, I'll look and see about the rotors. I know what you mean about the hubs and all being a PITA. I saw your location. Where is horsehead NY? And the no legal trail thing sucks. A guy I work with inlaws own 400 acres a little north of albany that they are looking to sell in the next year or so. was kinda tossing the idea of an off road park. Not sure if it would be profitable though. Not that i'm looking to make it rich, but atleast be able to pay the taxes and make payments on the land is what I'm unsure of. As long as things broke even, I'd be happy.
