trimster Posted July 25, 2020 Report Share Posted July 25, 2020 Looked a 2 trucks this week. One has our eye/interest. I would like some input if possible. http://www.westernidahotrucks.com/inventory/specsheet/?ID=16054470 It's 2014 780, with a D16 500hp, iShift w/over drive, 3.25 rear end, 239" WB. 538,534 miles. I'm getting a RigDigs report to see what that might reveal. This truck is kinda of a cream puff in that it was an Owner Operator, and he bought it with all the features then blinged it out a bit. It looks well cared for inside and out. The dealer in Idaho, has put $3k in fixes. Radiator leak, oil leak, etc. I went over this truck fairly meticulously and found nothing that makes me want to go hummm. We tried to drive the truck today but they could not get it started. 2019 batteries would not take a charge. I think one of them is a gone'er. On Saturday they do not have a yard tech in the sales dept. The price we settled on is $34,000 with our requests taken care of. (hitch removed, air lines pulled, oil and filters) Logistically I need to figure out how to get the computer dump. The are a Freightliner/ Western Star dlr. The Volvo dlr is 20 min down the road in Boise. I think that information will be helpful. I would appreciate any thoughts on the truck configuration... engine, etc. Big thanks Bob Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
