Greetings fellow members, I'm back after a long hiatus from the diesel world. After making a boneheaded decision to trade my beloved 2006 2500 for a 2010 3500 I quickly learned it was a mistake. Not only were the payments higher the fuel economy went down hill as well. FFwd a year I sold my 2010 3500 and been without a truck for the past 18 months. Well today I followed a lead that led me to a 1990 W350 with 93173 original miles on it. The truck is missing the original bed and has a shoddy paint job on it, but the body, frame, and drive train are all solid. Anyhow I'll be picking her up Wednesday of next week and in the meantime I'll be in search of some parts (SRW conversion, 8ft bed, and wiper cowl panel. Here are some pics.







I'm looking to know some things that I may have overlooked, or for someone to tell me if 3k is too much to be paying for this truck. Look forward to the replies.

Needs a thermostat neck to fix that mess.

Here's a good site for parts I found as I have a 83 Dodge now that I'm fixing up.

I like it. You better grab it before I find wherever South Mills, NC is. An aluminum flatbed or a nice dump body would look sick on that.

The seller is including an aluminum flatbed with the truck, but I've not seen it yet and I'm not sure I'm sold on the look. Hopefully it's nice and I can work out a trade with someone who had a standard bed and wants to trade.

Yep, a lot of people bought the newer trucks, only to regret getting one & getting rid of the older ones they had.

Truck looks good, a little TLC & it'll be sweet.

For $3k the seller is including an aluminum flat bed? What the firetruck are you waiting for?!

I would love to have that for a plow/work truck. The company I've been plowing for has an old style Fisher mount for that truck at his shop.
