1997 Gmc 3500 4x4 Diesel Dump Truck, Only 75k Miles, Stick Shift on 2040-cars
Patchogue, New York, United States
Cheap work horse...this 1997 GMC Sierra 3500 Dump truck is gonna be a great addition to any company that needs a capable 4x4 to make money for them. ONLY 75k MILES. The 6.5l v8 diesel runs strong and smooth. The 5 speed manual transmission shifts great and the clutch grabs just as it should. Going into 4 high and 4 low there are no issues, engages and disengages just fine. It is a regular cab with the bench seat in the front. The SL package is the standard work truck set up....just the basics for this beast. It does have AC and am/fm cassette radio.
Now for the down side, but for the reasons that this truck can be pretty much stolen, it has some flaws and issues....again motor, transmission, and 4 wheel drive work great, but as you can see from the pics, there are a lot of areas with rot starting to get through. Mostly on the outside of the dump body and then one spot on the front bumper. The undercarriage has clear rust, but no rot through....again it is a 16 year old work truck. PLEASE look at the pics and ask for anymore before bidding so it is clear what you are getting....I have seen many other older dump trucks with the same issues on the dump body's, and still get many more years of use out of them. Interior wise, the bench has some tearing on it and the passenger window is off the track, minor things. The one major concern there is, and why this truck MUST be picked up and not driven, is the brakes...now I drove this truck for a few miles and it feels as if the master cylinder is shot or there may be a leak in one of the lines. I didn't see any brake fluid under the truck, but when you press the pedal its spongy at best and goes to the floor...it is NOT recommended to drive this until that issue is addressed. A non driving issue is the dump body, I don't know if its a fuse, relay, or what ever, but it does not raise. As for the tires, it will need them as well to be in top running shape.
Again, this truck will be cheap enough to buy, fix all the issues, and still be a deal and a half to someone....or maybe you have a similar truck and want some parts....either way ask me anything before bidding...Thank you.

According to General Motors, owners "just love off-roading with [its fullsize body-on-frame sport utility vehicles]," namely the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban and GMC Yukon. If that's the case, it's a bit odd that sales of the previous generation of these models with the Z71 off-road package didn't sell particularly well.
Perhaps, considering this disconnect between owner's thoughts and desires with actual sales, it's not surprising that General Motors is reportedly "considering" an off-road specific model. That means the package would include styling changes and badges along with suspension modifications and larger wheels with appropriately sized fender flares.
There's no indication if the off-road model would be called Z71 or when it may potentially go on sale, assuming it ever goes on sale at all.
The invitation to come out and sample product at the General Motors Proving Grounds in Milford, MI is rarely dull, and after spending this morning driving preproduction versions of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon all we can say is... under strict embargo. Sorry, America, we were as excited as many of you are to learn more about GM's new midsize truck range and take note of how they go down the road, but it's going to be September before we're allowed to share that with all of you. Here's to sweet suspense.
While we might not be able to talk about refinement or handling yet, we did find some of the product positioning and marketing statements from GMC and Chevy officials on hand at the program to be pretty interesting.
Of course, we all know that the literal competitive set for Canyon and Colorado is comprised of two comparatively ancient Japanese midsize trucks: the Toyota Tacoma (which currently owns this segment) and the Nissan Frontier. The Frontier's bones are as old as the 2005 model year, with 2009 marking the last time the truck was updated. The Taco was also launched in 2005, though it did see a freshening for 2012. The point remains that, in every facet from powertrain to dash plastics, the GM midsize truck twins are going to look positively space age by comparison when they hit the market for MY 2015.
With the market for pickup trucks at its best since before the recession, General Motors can't afford any hiccups with the launch of its new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra twins, but it sounds like the popularity of V8-powered trucks is causing some supply-chain issues. Bloomberg reports that GM is experiencing a shortage of 5.3-liter V8 engines because an unnamed parts supplier has been unable to keep up with demand. This is leading GM to restrict the number of V8 Silverado and Sierra trucks that Chevrolet and GMC dealers are allowed to order.
Although it's unclear how long it will take to resolve the parts shortage, GM doesn't have much time to sort it out, as a new Ford F-150 looms on the horizon. At launch, GM's fullsize trucks were offered only with a base 4.3-liter V6 and the 5.3-liter V8, but a burlier 6.2-liter V8 will be available soon. Interestingly, at least at the moment, GM truck buyers don't seem as willing to downsize to V6 power as buyers of the F-150, which gets some 42-percent of its sales from trucks equipped with its EcoBoost V6 engine (not including the normally aspirated base V6).
Working out the kinks in the Silverado and Sierra's supply chain couldn't be more important to the health of the company. Full-size pickups are a huge profit driver - in 2012, the trucks were said to make up about two-third of GM's total profits.
