      Times is Tough !!

      Hello; Maybe the price is a bit High ! Tough times these days !!

      Your truck is 10yrs. old ! When I bought my 95 Ford it was 10 yrs. old as well, I paid $4100. for just the Truck !
      The Truck was Stock - Empty, but $4100. is Not $12,000.

      I'd rethink the Price Package ! As I said above, Tough Times !!

        Was your truck a Diesel Norm? That would be one reason that the price is considerably higher than you'd expect.
        I also notice that the trucks odometer reading is missing so maybe it has extremely low miles. Same thing goes for the welder, list the hours and it will help people decide if it is a good deal or not.

              There isnt much work going on right now.I think the Miller may be hurting you too. Most (not all) pipeline guys want Lincolns. The colors are kinda goofy too, the red graphics with a blue bed and shiny shapes stuck everywhere. Im not trying to be mean, its just really personalized.

                really nice rig. I think it's worth $21000. I know lots of rig welders running millers. You couldn't put that kind of rig together for that price.
                New power plant going up out here in AZ if you wanted to try and put it to work?
                You want 6500 for the machine right?

                      yeah i know the graphics turn alot of people away from the truck. when i bought it(the truck with regular bed), the guy couldn't sell the truck cuase of the paint so i got a good deal.

                      but it is a now a work truck. its made to be used not look good. if someone is turned away from it cause the looks aren't the best ever, then they are an idiot cuase you won't find another one set up this nice for this price. if the buyer is that worried about what a welding truck looks like, they should check their gender and probably buy a miata. haha

                        yeah i'd take $6500 for the welder.

                          Nice looking rig.

                          Colours can be changed.

                          Power unit is nice.

                          Deck appears to be well laid out.

                          I'm not a Miller Fan, but the welder is more than stout for most applications.

                          Wire feed capability is a nice touch.

                          If I was in the market for a truck (and closer) I'd buy it.

                          The colour combination may be a little off putting, but a good vinyl graphics shop could have that cleared up in an afternoon.

                          I hope you get your price.

                            thanks, if those designs were vinyl, they'd already be off. they r painted over the factory paint whoever did them did a nice job but they look dumb.

                              Yup - I understood that those were painted on... I meant that a good graphics shop could figure out something colour matching to the bed that they could overlay on top of them to cover them up until such time as a "proper" paint job was feaseable.

                              Then again, some folks would be happy with the cover-up, while others really couldn't care one way or the other in the first place.

                              I really think that the whole colour thing is a non-issue.

                              Hopefully the right guy (or gal) see your rig, and picks it up.
