Do you ever need a truck for doing other stuff? Hauling wood? Trash? If the Drive train is solid and was properly maintained and repaired, it might be a great truck to have around. Plowing is tough on trucks. The 47RH/RE is a good trans if it just has a shift kit and working electronics.

Like was mentioned, the older trucks often require tinkering and have plenty of quirks. Do you have the time/space/desire to work on an old truck? I love my old 12-valvers. They are about as reliable as it gets.
