    its got a fresh 402 in it with an RV cam and only 3k on it. a new centerforce clutch. the dana 60 has new warn hubs, bearings and seals. its got what looks like a 6" lift and 35s. other than that its pretty plane, flat black, leaky greasy hydroboost. i didn't get to drive it because the battery was dead so i'm supposed to stop by tomorrow. he wants 8 grand for it which i think is high.

    the motor was built buy a good shop in town so he probably spent a pretty penny for it and is using that to try and justify his price. i'll bring my camera to work tomorrow and snag a pic for you guys

    That better be a show truck! I just spent the last 3 months shopping for a crew cab 4x4 and I saw a lot of nice trucks in that price range on the west coast. I paid much less than that for my 91 crew cab 4x4 through Ebay 3 weeks ago.

    It's 22 years old, and needs some work ??? Find out what the shop charged him, and offer him $500.00 over that amount.

    My buddy just picked up a clean '79 K30 crewcab for $4000CDN. Only a 350, but it does have a Ranger Overdrive in it /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Too high, IMO, for that truck. Unless its in showroom condition, I would keep searching for another one, cheaper. Cheaper trucks are out there, just have to keep your eyes open and ask around. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Jason, there are at least 5 in the Portland area that are less $$ than that and seem to be in great shape. www.portlandautotrader.com

    That is extremly high based on your description. When I was looking for a crewcab last spring I saw something close to that sitting on a dealer lot in Redmond, OR for $4000. It is gone now but there are better deals available.

    This 1981 Crew Cab cost me $5,000, and it has a built .030 over 396 (402), and came with 39.5" Boggers.

    yup, not even going to persue it any farther. if someone is a little over priced i'll try and haggle with em. but when they are several grand over i don't bother. either they think their sh!t is gold or they don't really want to sell it.

    still don't see a lot of crew cabs around here. at least not the 4x4, dana 60 variety.

    Dont worry they are out there. Most owners just like them too much to sell them /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Sooner or later someone will need the money and have to let there gas guzzler go and you will be there watching... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm keeping my eyes open for either an '87 V30 SRW regular cab and also a '91 V30 SRW crew cab. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm still searching for one, but at the right price. Every one that I've found was like $8000 or more. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif I'm not eager to pay that much for one of these. That's why I keep looking around.

    But fear not, I WILL find my '87 or '91. And, it will be the right price, too. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Are you wanting a true K30 truck or just the D60? Wouldn't make sense to buy the whole truck for just the D60 when you can find the 60 for cheaper.

    i reall only need a 3/4 ton for work, but when i saw that crew cab i thought that would be cool for the kids too. might still go burb but its a pain stuffing tools in the back. plus i'd have to have a custome rack built for lumber.

    Yeah, I understand. I would love to have the crew cab to haul more people, but also would like to have a Sub for more interior room. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Guess the only thing you can really do is to buy a crew cab and throw on a topper with a removable rear window so the kids can climb in and out of it for more room. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
