I’d assume it’s right around $1,000. I get stuff here from Portland, OR for just over that.
My truck was less than that but broker told me more than it cost to ship from Phoenix because that is a popular route.

i always figure around $1,000 if it’s west of Nebraska. Usually in the $700-800 range but that’s my safe estimate.

You are getting bigger trucks too!

I got lucky and got a ride on a backhaul with a guy that delivered trailers out of Elkhart

Bigger trucks, and they’re usually in very unfortunate locations. Rarely in a big city or along a major route lol.

I'm considering snagging this as a winter DD for when 7.3 is in storage instead of one of the 15+ GMC's. Not because I don't want a GMC, but, this being a single wheel 1-ton truck with a crane body is pretty fucking rare. Would be very convenient for me.

2012 F-350 4x4. 6.2 Gas. 158,000 miles. Rust-free truck out of New Mexico.

What do you think something like this will bring?

It's very hard to say. I would like to say somewhere in the 10,000-13,000 dollar range, but I could be way off. A truck like this I could easily sell for $20,000 as well, it just depends on who is looking that day. They're kind of an oddball vehicle. Useful for someone like me, not so much for a heavy equipment mechanic that needs to cart around a lot of tools.

What I can say is that truck with a normal 8' utility body would probably sell for about $10,500. Maybe a bit more being from a rust-free environment. So I'm not quite sure what the added value of the crane is. Single rear wheel utility bodies are not easy to come by, most cranes end up being mounted in the the bed, which takes up width which gets annoying. My old truck that this would somewhat replace had that style and it got very annoying.

This is another contender. I've got a potential buyer for my F350 so I'm casually browsing for its replacement now. Requirements are that it can tow 15,000#'s, be reliable and already be kinda beat up to the point where I simply don't give a flying fuck about it if it gets a scratch or dent or rust spot.

2014 Ram W2500HD 4x4 Crew-Cab Pickup Truck, 6.7 L diesel, Auto, A/C, (202,384 miles) (starts, runs, bad transmission) (TITLE DELAY) NOTE: This unit is being sold AS IS/WHERE IS via Timed Auction and is located in Columbus, OH.

Big Horn package, so, heated seats and wheel and nicer standard features than a base truck. If I could have it driving down the road with a fresh trans for 15-16k I think it'd be a decent deal.

You could make this so cool by stripping it to a bare flatbed. But, then again, it's still Maxxforce powered. It has a tire off the rim driver rear, that's why it's sitting so weird. Current bid $1,150 ends on Tuesday lol.

And then occasionally you just find a random gem in a sea of beat to shit white trucks. Helps it's in Portland, Oregon from a rust standpoint. I have absolutely no use for an S-10, especially one that I'd have to store in the winters due to the guilt I would feel driving this thing in the salt, but fuck do I want it.

Current bid : $2,300

Any idea what the gvwr is on that? (The IH.)

Tag is worn in the pic they show of it, my guess is 26,001. It's air brake and manual trans as well, so CDL required regardless.

I can farm plate it and then I don't need a CDL. Where's this thing located at?

I wonder if there is something wrong with the boom since it has those defective tags on some of the controls.

Upper is red-tagged, operating condition unknown. There could be an actual problem, or they just didn't test it because the tire is off the rim and is unstable.

I sold my 6.7 because I found a rust bubble on the cab corner and I couldn't justify owning a vehicle that's still quickly depreciating that's starting to rust.

Just found this in Texas. Rust free, and a slight step up from my Lariat to this one being a King Ranch. Fix the seat, PDR the bedside as good as possible. Pretty much same truck I just sold but for probably $10,000 less.

That KR interior....
giphy.gif

I like them a lot. I still wish they used the "legit" cattle hide like they did in the 6.0 Era KR's, but this will do. I know Katzkin makes OE replacement covers so I'd probably just have both front seats done to match. Rest of the interior is in pretty good shape. I'm all over the board with what I want, I'm looking at a clean LB7 Duramax in a Copart auction, this, a 7.3, 2011 3/4 ton yukon, etc etc. No hurry to replace my truck, just browsing at this point.
