Options:

1995 Chevy K2500 HD 4x4
Extended Cab, long box
6.5 Turbo Diesel
4L80E Automatic Transmission (very strong)
128,300 miles
L65 Package (this means that it is the heavy duty model, with 3.73 gears front and rear)
Blue exterior
Blue interior
Detroit locker installed in the rear one year ago (can be removed, and price reduced)
2 sets of wheels:
1)the stock wheels painted black, with 265/75/R16 tires
2)H2 wheels (with center caps, but do not fit) and 275/70/R17 tires (can be removed, and price lowered. only stock wheels included then)
Factory CD player
A/C (compressor new last week along with a new evaporator)
Cruise control
Power windows
Power driver seat
Power locks
Tilt column

The good:

Paint is very shiny, and cleans up very well.
Engine and transmission work flawlessly.
New alternator, A/C compressor, block heater, paint below the trim (rust was repaired last year) new speakers all around the inside (infinity), new ball joints one year ago along with a fresh alignment, new paint on the bottom (below the trim) from front to back.
The truck has the plates in the bed to be used with a 5th wheel or goose neck hitch, but I have never used such towing methods.
Interior is in very good shape (no rips, tears, or stains)
Everything works.
This is a great truck, that has many many miles left in it.
There is not a lot to say about the good because most everything works very well. I have an envelope containing everything I have done to the truck since I have owned it.

The bad:

Light scratches on the paint. Can't really see unless you get up close
Something is wrong behind the dash where the air does not circulate through the vents on the dash very well with the A/C on. The floor and defrost work very well whether the A/C or heat is on. The A/C does keep you comfortable, but it could be better.
The 4x4 works in High range, but not in low range. There is not a problem with the transfercase, because it does go into low range, but does not engage the front wheels. Multiple shops believe it to the be the transfercase switch which is cheap part and easy fix. I never use 4lo so I just forgot about it.
The driver seat bracket is messed up, where it is fairly loose on the front left corner. I think it broke when I leaned back one day. I am currently trying to find a new seat for the truck.
The engine goes through 1 qt. of oil about every 1000-1500 miles. I did a lot of research once I learned this, and it is considered normal and you should not worry so long as you do not let it get too low.
Last summer I had rust on the bottom of the doors repaired. The shop coated the metal with a rock guard type coating, the painted over it. I was not happy with the rock chips that I was still getting, so I coated everything with 3M rocker panel spray (clear coating that protects from chips, available at NAPA and other stores like it) and that is since started to peel off. Something with how I put it on. Also, the paint did not bond on the passenger door very well, so they resprayed it. Somehow they messed up the paint again, so if I keep the truck long enough I am going to bed-line the rockers with Durabak. If I do not get to it before I sell the truck, I will deduct some off the price and give you the gallon of Durabak I am going to use.

All in all, this is a very good truck. Only reason I am selling is because it is not what I truly want...I am the type of person that has to drive what they want, or I am not happy...so I am going to get something else. The truck runs and drives wonderfully and gets 16 MPG cruising at 72-74, 17 cruising at 65, and I have gotten 18.5 cruising at 55-60. This truck will suit the next owner very well.

I am willing to drive the truck wherever the new buyer wants, as long as they pay me some money for it...mainly to help me get home.

I am asking 7000 as the truck sits right now, if you do not want the locker, subtract 300, if you do not want the H2 wheels subtract 300. All prices negotiable.

Any questions call me at 715-781-5421 or email me at [email protected]

I've ridden in this truck quite a few times and it runs and drives great. Definitely a very nice rig, especially for a 95
