It has 179k miles on it with a 16ft box 2007 Diesel and a lift gate on the box--E-track within--
$11,500 is what she told me was the lowest they would take for it-
used it for rental--here in Austin

so what do you think of the NPRs?

I don't like buying a vehicle that has 179k on it, concerned about the problems I might have and realize that less miles means higher price-

I love our NPR, drives very good and once it's in the turbo it has great power...and I wouldn't buy one with 179k on it either...diesel or gas, especially gas.

I have been to the IP truck place. As CGA said, These are lease returns from RAC. Supposed to have been maintained well as a part of the lease agreement. Trucks are de-branded. They take off the lift gate and put on a ramp. I think IPTruck got the hint because they now put on an exterior dove tail to lighten up the ramp weight.

Supreme Body makes a nice vanscape body. My understanding is they are about 5K and you need a 14" chasis minimum. I think you are just about going to need to go new to find the crew cab. That gets you up to about 55K

Might be able to work out a 5 year lease then buy it to keep the payments down. I would likely only put 100 to 115 K on one in 5 years so I would get a lot of use out of a new one.
