    FS: The COOLEST truck in MS

    I can no longer afford to go to school and make payments on my truck. And I've always wanted a rice-burner

    BUT---with the extensive modifications done to my truck (most notably the BIG F'N HOLE IN THE DASH for the 10.4" LCD), I can't trade it in. And, I can't exactly sell it to Joe Schmoe who works at the jiffy mart, because the normal, average person is either intimidated by the system or will kill themselves using it while driving.

    So, I'm offering it to you guys (and YES, this includes the computer)

    Truck Specs:

    1997 Chevy Cheyenne 2WD Extended Cab Short Bed
    96,000 miles, only 20K on the transmission.
    4 P265/75R15 Goodyear Tracker tires with less than 15,000 miles
    Westin Chrome Step Bars
    Westin Chrome Bed Rails
    Bedliner (generic plastic kind)
    Diamond plate Drop-in Tool box
    Custom Painted Interior
    Custom Carpet (to match interior)
    Headlight Strobes
    Blue Neon interior lights
    CB with PA & external speaker
    etc, etc, etc...
    Car Alarm: Keyless Entry, 2-way FM remote/pager, Shock sensor, 126dB siren, remote start (if I can figure out how to get the remote start to work), aux output (trunk release, but trucks dont have trunks)

    I'm sure I missed something up there.

    Computer Specs:
    10.4" LCD Touchscreen
    667 Celeron
    96MB PC100 RAM
    20GB Western Dig HDD
    16x Slot Loading Pioneer DVD
    MSI-6125 BookPC: LAN, NTSC/VGA out, 4xUSB, 2xFireWire, IrDA
    2 PCI slots, one of which currently has a 2 port serial card (with hookup for another LPT port--and I have the connector)
    Rand McNally Streetfinder GPS w/software
    That nifty 8-port parallel relay card I keep talking about.


    Blue Book Value at KBB.com lists for $9770 with A/C, and $9350 without. The truck HAS air conditioning, but there is a wiring problem somewhere that I haven't gotten around to finding so the A/C doesnt work. Simple enough to fix once I find it.
    The fuel guage also only works intermittently--most likely the fuel sender. I have been using the trip meter to check my gas for the last 10,000 miles or so.

    So, on to the PRICE: since it does have a couple of minor problems, but it DOES come with a computer system whose components are worth $1500, I'm gonna say:
    $9500 negotiable.

    And Skinny, I'm not going to sell it to you for the cost of shipping

    Oh man!

    I'll be going to school in MS this fall (I like in NY) and I've been trying to find a car I can afford that's already there... Well, you're got one that's already there...

    are you here now?

    if you are, that would make 3 carputers in a town of 16,000 people.

    I'll bet that is the highest per-capita avg in the world!

    We should get together and compare notes.....

    There is a CPE major here named percy. I can't remember his MP3CAR name, but he has a CRV with a BookPC and a 5" screen.

    I live on campus, FarmHouse Fraternity. It's on sorority row, across from Sig EP. We are having a party (sort of) tonight. You can come by if you'd like.

    Well I found out why the fuel guage doesn't work...it's part of the fuel pump...and the fuel pumps on 96-99 Vortec 4.3L V-6's start to fail at 80,000 miles on 30% of all vehicles with that engine. I found out because my fuel pump ceased to function on sunday, leaving me stranded in beautiful Ackerman, Mississippi. Luckily, I was at the only intersection in Ackerman, which happens to be where the local Chevy dealership is. Can't get any luckier than that!

    So, when I get my truck back tomorrow not only will my fuel pump be replaced, but my Air Conditioning will be fixed as well.

    The fuel pump/sender goes for $350 at AutoZone, A/C High-pressure cut-off switch is about $40, and the Wiper-motor pulse controller (which was also going bad) runs $140. Add labor, and you get round about $1000 worth of work.

    I am paying $200. GOD I LOVE WARRANTIES!

    So, price still stands at $9500 neg.
    any serious takers?
