JRs. I don't HAVE to have new. I know that it is harder to get a loan on an older model truck.
I have yet to find the exact vehicle I need/want.
I want a dodge 3500/4500 with Knapheide or equivelant landscape stake body. It has removable sides so you can load from either side & barn style back doors. Every used truck is either flat bed or service bed.
I don't WANT to lease I just thought it was possible the only way I could afford a newer truck. I rather spend less then $35K on a used truck then $50K+ on a new truck. Really not comfortable spending any kind of money but I know my business needs it. We are running the WHEELS off older trucks and repair bills are getting to be to much. Right now were running 99 mitsu cabover, 1995 F-250 pulling dump trailers, 2001 F-350 pulling trailers & a 2000 Ranger for estimates and running around town.
I could cut my fleet in half with one newer truck.
