Price is all relevant. If it is something you need and they work then the price was good. If they end up breaking down half way throught he year then you got screwed. I think the price sounds pretty good.

One thing I learned a long time ago is if you think you are getting charged to much then walk away. If you walk away they tend to call you back with a better deal.

I do not know how long they were up for sale but it does sound like you got a pretty good price. Compare them to brand new and deduct about 60% of the price them see where it is. That is what I try to do on anything that is older then 7 years.

I hope they last for you as you want to get at least one good year beofre you have to do any real work to them.

Seems like a decent catch for 20K. Obviously I can't look much into the trucks as far as how well they run, but assuming your buddy felt comfortable with what he seen - he didn't do too bad. . . . . .15K wouldn't have been a bad start to feel 'em out...

except for that Shindiawa stuff

As long as he gets the job done and turns a profit it doesn't really matter too much.

Wish him luck and help him out where you can - that's all you can really do.

Tell him "good luck" from TITAN in FL.
