Listen to a jd tech and say no to this, if you have to ask anyone whats a good price you should not be buying a machine like this.
We have a machine in the corner of the shop with atleast a broken gearbox.
Been thinking to myself about making an offer on it but i am not going to because of the variables involved.
I know the prices but i also know the risks from bolt to bolt
That being said you need to see it for yourself.
Ask what an engine costs and armed with that information throw a lowball offer.
Forget about dump beds and stuff like that for a second but think about little things.
Those little things will cost you more than an actuator.
Try putting together
2 4x4 shaft bearings with 2 boots
1 4x4 coupler
4 balljoints front
1 driveshaft boot
1 gear selector spring
2 brake discs
2 brake pads
Youll get there pretty fast and this is just an example but i made quotes that are way worse than this going over 5k dollars for seemingly random things
Ofcourse the customer is free to not replace certain things and so are you.
You can fix it over time and maybe get lucky if you didnt buy a wreck.
Or maybe buy a complete used one, maybe even tx ts 6x4, preferably diesel if you want a machine that lasts a long time without problems.
Hell if you are going the distance why not get a cheap 6x4 diesel and turbo it because its better to start with a good base.
You cant have more fun than with a 6x4
And yes, i agree with that 4500 is way too high
