It would bring that price with a Cummins swap but a 360 with the body in primer hiding gods know what, nope.

Google "Landoll Centerfold". They have been around for years, though not very popular today.

the hinge pin is under the frame rail, so the weight of the truck will keep it from folding
there also may be locks on it

Seen quite a few of them when I was looking at trucks, never actually went and looked at one.

There are very few vehicles on the road that can transport 7-passengers, their gear, and tow a trailer at the same time. If you need something like that a Suburban can't be beat.

If you don't need to transport more than 5 other people and you need a pickup box to carry stuff then a crew cab pickup might be a better choice for you.

But unless you are going to be towing more than 10K on a regular basis you really don't need a diesel.

Good luck on your search.
My diesel excursion does it, only does it at 70 mph. Lol

MarkObtinaro It all depends upon how the FL50 is equipped.

But seeing that it has 8-lug wheels I would guess the GVWR is well under 20K and most likely about 16K.

TOAdisco311 What's the GVWR of a FL50?

sceep Someone buy this right freaking now. My dream platform, cheap as fuck. https://albuquerque.craigslist.org/cto/5607540531.html

IDASHO I agree. Thats a great price.

Absolute steel IMO if it is running and driving, which looks to be the case from the photos. Nothing seems to be terribly out of place anyways.

From the photos it looks to be some variant of the "silver diamond" or "black diamond" inline 6

bigzook Only $2,000. Seems like a deal. I have no idea what the engine is

Just for fun, what's a "once decent hauling trip"? A hauling trip that used to be better than it is now, and is no longer decent but once was?
Why do you clutter up threads with your meaningless petty bullshit? Do you think anyone gives a fuck? Do you think your continuous smart ass smarter than everyone keyboard ninja asshole douche baggery is making anyone smile, or making this site a better place? Take a deep breath, count to ten, and pull your head out of your ass before posting.

Thanks.

From everyone.

Mr. Mindless beginning of the end of the diesel ricer bubble? maybe I should sell my 3500 sooner than later while it's still worth way more than I paid.
05-26-2016 10:38 AM
lunacy F550s and the like are going to get real cheap soon. Oil yards down here are loaded with those trucks, just sitting. Once the banks start calling there will be a lot of trucks up for auction. Big trucks are already cheap around here.

Agreed. Buy the truck and part it out for $2500 and get a free Super 60!

That, or build a decent 4x4 tow rig by swapping a new engine in it.
