i don't know want his dealer called but ever one calls him the 'diesel man' he from Syracuse NY. most his trucks are on ebay. Im looking for one and thats the closes place to me that has them. all his trucks look like there in really good shape. i just want to see if anyone has any info on the place before i drive 5 hours to get one. thanks
I know a couple guys that bought trucks. One in Connecticut and 1 in Montana. That Real Diesel Dude gets top dollar for his trucks. The guy in Conn. said the Real Diesel Dude was weird to deal with, but the truck was nice, but pricey. The guy in Montana was not happy when he got his. Her is the PM he sent me when I asked how his new truck was.
"The truck was delivered by his driver to Billings Montana. The truck showed up with dents in the passenger side of the bed that were not in the E bay Pictures in the add for the truck. The driver mistakenly called me saying he was dropping off a plow in Ohio on the way out here. I think the dents were put in the bed with a forklift, when loading or unloading the snow plow. The "Diesel Dude"-John,
would never reply to my questions about how the dents got in the bed, or to the fact that he had a plow delivered in the truck I bought.
The truck was delivered with a cracked drivers mirror, heater grids that were not hooked up, missing windshield wash tank, leaking vacuum/power steering pump, hole in the bed for stacks, and a gooseneck hitch with the ball cut off flush with a cutting torch. I was ****** about the dents in the bed. He acted like I was just a ing customer... I paid 15,800 for the truck and 1700 to have his guys drive it out. He said he didn't make any money on the deal. Well, **** that is not my problem....I just thought the truck needed to be represented honestly. Maybe I am naive but I paid good money for it. I had to hound him for 3 weeks to send the owners manual that was mentioned to come with the truck. I would have gone out and driven the truck back here....but my son was born during that time.
I put in a new clutch, but at 156K miles that is normal. I put in DDP II injectors
which I am happy with. I will get this truck in shape over time. But I would not
buy another truck from John the Diesel Dude...unless I could test drive it."
If youre referring to the guy thats got trucks on Ebay all the time, their website is NYdiesels.com I believe.. My buddys cousin got his truck there and it has been great to him, I think it probably goes like any used dealership, You just gotta look really close and get lucky!
if you want to buy a hob cob truck at a premium price and have zero customer service, go ahead. Looked at a couple trucks awhile ago in person and the rust was painted over, paint bubbles everywhere, interiors stained/torn/etc. dents and terrible frame rust. claims they go through a complete inspection......maybe the engines and trannys were good but no way of telling with out test driving every one of them. mighty high price tag for crappy cosmetics and uncertain drivetrains
I can not imagine buying a used truck sight unseen. Even if you look it over, there are things that would take a mechanic to check out... I've been taken by used sellers, new dealers, etc. It seems one must be a mechanic or bring one to buy a vehicle.
BTW, this forum is great! A prospective CTD owner who reads these pages can certainly get a necessary eduction before purchase. I wish I had.

Nobody please buy a truck from this guy a liar and scumbag when my truck had a shot vp44 a month after I bought it called him said hell send me Brand new HO pump he has on the shelf.. Sent it to me. Was supisious no washers smelled like diesel fuel but I had no choice so had to put it on. Ran fine the first start then never started again by itself only with brake clean even know it's terrible it's only way I could diagnose the problem..so spent 3 hrs putting bad vp44 on my truck. Txted him told him I was unhappy and very pissed off about not having my new truck for over a month..so had to spend 1200$ on new vp44 put air dog 150 on fuel pressure gauge and had tank cleaned. Was hair over 2000$. It's not the trucks fault. Oh yeah the fuel filter before all this happend I went to change it looked like someone rolled it down a 1000 foot hill of dirt and stuck it back into the truck -__- don't buy from this scumbag!!
