thats really not miserable. If you plan on a budget of 5k then you could have all the body work fixed, painted and you could get you $$$ out of it.

impress friends when you've made money doing this.

Your first truck will be something employees drive around when you get good at this and grow.

Id look for something with a dump or flatbed on it. Unless your just mowing… then it would be tiny, like a f150 v6 or a dakota or ranger.
