There are tons of better deals out there. $40k just seems an insane amount for a truck that will get beat up from plowing and towing over time! If I were you...I'd keep looking.

You can buy a new truck for those prices

Warrenton is also severely overpriced

Why would you pay 20k+ for a truck was 150k miles on it.

If you want a 6.4 you need to find a job two. They have a larger air dam thing on the bottom

Personally you can get a new truck for these trucks you're looking at

Not only that but you get the added benefit of the lower insurance because its an older vehicle as well as lower property tax

Once again why the loaded work truck?

I'd look for a basic work truck, diesel if you need it but less frills. Do you really need heated leather seats and in dash nav?

Since the first trucks you were looking at we're almost $40k, just spend the little bit extra and get this.

You can pay 45 for a new one.

If he wants a loaded work truck so be it. Not everyone wants to ride around in a pos. probably his only truck as well

Right now this would be my only truck and a personal truck as well. I don't necessarily want the loaded truck but I like the idea of a nice truck to impress my friends...
