Nice truck..
I bought another truck a month ago.. saw it up for sale, looked pretty straight and rust free..
93 dodge with a 5.9, 250,000 miles, runs like a top and not a speck of rust on it, though the paint is faded. I got it for about $3500 US, I have another grand into it for odds and ends, new seats, covers, and knick knacks

Nice truck when I clicked on it to enlarge there was a lot of women being advertised around the photo. Have you ever checked them out.

This is the first used truck I've bought since 1982. I've been looking for 4 months for a decent cheap diesel truck that I could use to pull a 20' stock trailer and a gooseneck flat bed every now and again. I'll only put 12k miles a year on the truck so hopefully it'll hold up. Everyone besides my dad thinks I'm crazy for not just buying another new truck. But spending $50k to $60k for the privilege of driving a new truck didn't make any sense to me.


Nice truck looks similar to the one i bought. Congrats.. I personally cant see spending 50-60k on a vehicle im probably going to beat to crap

I picked this one up in January. 1999 Dodge 3/4 ton with a 24v Cummins and a 5 speed. 230,000 miles. I removed the camper shell and put my tool box on. Also switched out the stock 16" wheels for 17" factory take-offs from a 2014. Will probably do an aftermarket lift pump but that's it. Would much rather drive this than a new one with a payment.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

my 01 f250 just rolled over 100k.. hopefully it has another 100k in her but she's falling apart from rust.

So far my oil dipstick fell off, muffler fell off, both running boards, and my bed is about done. thats this year only.. I have a lto of ducttape holding her together. but i'll still pull a gooseneck load with her.. haha :)

yes.. they are terrible here with it. They HAVE to use it all because CONTRACTS! It'll be 50 degrees out.. but if its going to be like 30 that night.. they'll be out salting the roads and briming them. I passed one of them sitting in his truck on his phone on the side of the road 'salting' ( overtime pay).

Then I get a letter in the mail from the water company telling me not to use excess salt on my driveway / sidewalks becausea it'll leach into the water supply... WHAT??? hahahahahaha idiots.

Nice truck, just needs the other 1 1/2' of bed to be a real truck.

It's to late for this truck but I under coat my truck a few times a year with used engine oil.

TT really appreciates that.
I'm taking real good care of it for him.

So when does TT get to take possession of the truck? Seems like he's been waiting a long time
