Can anybody school me on this truck? I know the basics, 6.2 diesel, 4x4, etc. What I’m having a hard time finding is a value post base lining and maintenance. It seems the brush/utility box combo is pretty rare. The truck is a 1985 and hasn’t run or moved for the better part of 2 decades. It has 33k original miles. Based on the fact that it has a rear locker and limited slip front diff, I think it would make someone a super cool camping/bugout truck. It was picked up after military service by either a fire department or forest service, as it has fire equipment in the back.
Essentially I’m just looking to get a value of it running and driving to see if it’s worth investing in to flip.
Sorry for the lousy pics, it’s crammed in the back of lot that is being liquidated by the owners family. Arizona truck with no rust. I know it’s hard to tell, but it’s really straight and dry. Obviously painted white at some point which is peeling off the utility box in places. Otherwise, no real damage or issues.

There is probably a pretty limited amount of folks who would want to use it as-is. I think a regular pickup bed would be more desirable to most. They're not well suited to freeway speeds with a 6.2, TH400 and the low gears. I believe those are geared 4.56, some (ambulances for example) have a limited slip up front and all have a locker in the rear 14 bolt. The axles might bring $1500 as a guess, but being a dually they're not as valuable as SRW parts because most end users will need to change the hubs. The bed may be worth something too. Maybe $3k for the whole truck? (Running and driving). The 33k miles may not mean much if it spent them at redline to hold 65 mph. It probably has a lot of idle time as well.

Ya they’re definitely slow. The rear is a Dana 70 with a locker and the front is a limited slip Dana 60. At least from what my dually research shows.
