Thanks waterlogged, if you want to fly out, Reno, NV (RNO) is 45 minutes from my house!

Moose- Thanks for the suggestions, at this point, its only on TT. Will scoot it over to Craigslist in a few days if nobody here is interested.

A couple of goodies that come with the truck.

Stock wheels, caps, and lug covers included, in great shape. Comes with tires, but they are from 2001.

Throttle body spacer, I usually don’t buy stuff like this, but I heard it helped on the TBI. Anyway, up to the new owner if they put in on or not.

I'm very interested to see what you end up getting for the truck, as I have essentially the same truck in similar condition. Mine is a 1999 with the 454 and it just turned 77,000 miles. I'd love to replace it with a crew cab truck as my boys are getting quite cramped in the extended cab. I have three or four people waiting for me to sell, but I'm afraid it's worth way more to me than the market thinks it is.

I will keep the post updated on the status and price if it ends up selling. It has been fun to hear what others think of the truck. At the end of the day, the truck still has some value and use to me. Just at this point I have 3 trucks and Blue is the one that I anticipated needing the least. On the other hand, I do like having a truck that the camper can hang out on and if not, there is a garage spot for it.

The third truck (or car to some) is a Ridgeline and it will stay in the stable for now, I bought it new off the lot and 12 years later it has only needed routine maintenance. Can flip a U turn anywhere, haul 5 people and dog, and is game for pulling the boat, enclosed snowmobile trailer or anything else that is hovering around 5000 lbs or less.

Sethro, I agree on the wide spread range of value of these trucks. The buyer of this truck will have to appreciate driving a classic and in my mind, will get the most value out of it if they want to put a cabover on it, hitch up their boat and do some lake camping or haul dirt bikes or any other trailer. It’s so much fun, that is why I upgraded.

For those that want to know how much I may have stupidly sunk into this truck see below:
Torklift hitch, about $600
Rear Firestone Airbags, $300
Lance Camper Wiring $40
Wiring for 7way, 4way and trailer brake $80
Labor for wiring $490 (I was in a time pinch and overpayed, I know!)
Happijac camper mounts $200
Wheels and tires $1,800 (265/75/16 with 16x8 wheels to increase tire/wheel capacity to 3.415 lb per corner.). Matches axle capacity of 7,500 closer than the stock size. I weighed the truck with 1/2 tank gas and myself and front axle was 3,640lb and rear was 2,580 lb, for anyone wanting to get a gauge of weights.

Hitch, airbags, camper mounts are parts only, I installed these. Spending not included above are fixing the driver side window with new regulator ($215) and having the AC charged and a leak fixed ($190).

It is always painful to add up the cost of customizing. So yeah, I put $3,500 into this truck to make it more safe to carry a camper and another $400 to fix a few items.

Ok, I will let the story of Blue continue. Thanks to all who have commented. You have provided input that is valuable.

1995 GMC K2500 3/4 Ton Truck

For anyone following, I decided to put it up on Craigslist.

If no one here snaps it up, which they should, you have no hassle listing services that work well including:

https://bringatrailer.com/auctions/
cars.com
autotrader.com

In all three cases, get a good camera, take a bunch of high res pics. BaT auction examples are tremendous how to's in their own right.
Moose - just looked at bringatrailer.com
Thanks for the heads up on that site. Submitting to them to see if the GMC cuts the mustard.

For those of you following, it ended up going to a young local that was stoked to get it. Mechanically inclined and loved Chevy/GM family, the perfect buyer. Final selling price was $11,500. I deleted all prices since it ended up going for more than I offered it here. Since itís the internet and you never know, please donít comment on the previous price I offered here.

Cheers to all!
