    4 speed, long bed, 208, 12 bolt open rear, 10 bolt open front
    lockout hubs, 33x12.50 wild countrys, no lift
    hideous brown color, some surface rust

    I'd say $1500...but your description doesn't do much to want to make me buy it. Basically, your description tells me:
    A) it's an ugly color
    B) plus it has some rust
    C) it needs work
    D) fails to mention anything 'special'

    To ensure you get even less for it why not add "I'm desperate for money" at the end of the 'ad'?? /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    I'm guessing a future in Sales isn't exactly in the cards for you.

    I'd say $2,500! I paid $3K for my K5 and it was in a little better shape /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    hate is a strong word, i think the better terms for it would be extremem dislike, and disapointment.
