Bought a truck...

Now I can put a bullit in the VW, and never buy one ever again as long as I live. Heck if I never sit in one again I'll be happy!


I'm going to get my friends buffer and turn it from chaulk red to somewhat shiney red this week, than soak it in 10 gallons of Armor All like the dealers do. I already have the for sale sign sitting on my desk.

Replaced with this:



I got it for such a good price I couldn't resist. I wanted a new Ford, but I like keeping the $10k difference in the bank even more.

I'm dissapointed in you. I was hoping you'd buy a Ford. Oh well. Looks like a good purchase. How many miles?

You'll love having a truck, and so will all your friends who move

Has the truck been hit? Looks like an unusual shadow on the bedside panel and the little crease on the fender.

Of course it isn't brand new and not expected to be, I just have zero trust for dealers, especially when someone gets a good deal.

It looks to be on par with a work truck. To be expected.

It's pre-dented to take that first dent/scratch pressure off.

Congratulations, Chris! You've been needed it for awhile. And needing that VW to go away for awhile, too.

Thats a random google picture, but the truck I bought is the same thing. Minus the dent. The one I bought has a very small dent in its front fender the size of a nickel, very minor. Other than that the body is straight.

Its a 2005 with 50k miles on it, dealer serviced by the book, with new brakes and a new battery, newer looking tires etc. Very clean underneath too, it was a local truck. It was a GE fleet truck before. My uncles friend picked 3 up at the auction, I paid $7k, retail is $9k-$10k around here. I just did an autotrader search on that truck this morning and within 100 miles everything similer is $3k more.


One thing I don't like is that it has a cap, luckly it was clamped on so I'm going to take it right off and sell it. If anyone wants a cap PM me, its going on ebay next week. I need a tailgate too since they took that off for the cap.



I'm going to put nerf bars and a bug shield on it like this one, might go stainless on both for some contrast.

I was wondering how that white truck got to be chalk red........ chevy or ford, much better than a Yota. are you sure you want to sell the cap? they are handy for moving things in the rain. and it seems everytime I need to move things it rains, thats why I ended up with an Excursion.

I can't stand the way they look.
