It comes with heavy heart that I must sell my dually 12 valve. Our family is growing and I need to get a mega cab. I looked at 11 trucks before I bought this truck many years ago. It is hands down the best tow/ haul rig I have ever owned. There is nothing it won't tow and empty it gets 21mpg.

I am a very picky person about mechanicals, I am also not a kid, this is not a kids truck. I am 40 years old, so no, It has not been raced or juiced up to pull sleds or anything stupid like that. It is built to haul. So you can see I do everything I can to keep the truck in excellent working order. I would not hesitate to hook onto a trailer and drive to the east coast right now with this truck.
That being said, there are 2 things that will be fixed before the new owner takes it home.
1. oil pan gasket is seaping, not horrible, but I will have a new one installed
2. driver seat has normal tear in side, that be professionally reupholstered as well.
The truck has a goose neck ball in the bed, spray in bedliner and rubber mat as well. It also has bedliner sprayed on the bottom 6" of the body. There is a small amount of rust on the drivers side lower panel behind the door, about the size of the palm of your hand. I had planned to have a patch panel made, about $300, never got around to it. Truck does not come with receiver hitch in pics sorry, already on my new truck. I have tried to be as honest and upfront as I can about this truck. It is not a show truck, but it is very clean for its age. It is built to tow/ haul anything you want. The truck has 318k miles on it. Tailgate is silver with rhinoliner on the inside, white one went away long ago.
I have priced this truck TO SELL, so please no low ball offers.
The price is $10,900 with everything included
The other price is $10,000 even W/O THE FRONT BUMPER
if you email me - please put " 96 12 valve " in the title or I will delete it, too many spammers and phishers.
Clear montana title in hand.
