    Finally got a new truck today, had to switch from a V6 and step up to the V8 to pull my landscape trailers. 2008 Chevy 1500 V8 tinted windows, painted emblems, billet grill, tow package all for $16000 out the door! I like to post stuff like this so you guys don't get ripped when you buy new trucks! I have heard what dealers in other areas are charging for their trucks!! These trailers sell for $1095 if anyone was wondering, and I put 24s on it to dress it up a little.

    Dress it up a bit? Thats a Jesse James Special. Your clients ever complain about your pricing being high, and you driving around in a blinged out truck? Those rims and tires probably cost you more than your trailer.

    $2000 shipped to my door with tires balanced and mounted with lugs and all...lol I won't say where I got them though, cause then everyone would have my rims!! I have had 3 of my clients buy lawnmowers from me, they realized how much it was costing them a month compared to what the payments on a mower would be...lol. You win some and you lose some...oh well

    $2000 on those wheels, joking, right?

    IMO, it looks tacky, but thats just me. those low profile tires are gonna die under the load of towing.

    Decent little work truck, but lose the rims. You want to look professional, not ghetto.

    How in the heck did you get a brand new truck for $16000?

    I like the truck, you got a good deal on it, but the ghetto rims have GOT to GO.

    Those rims look very unprofessional. It would be different if they were just some conservative 20" chrome rims but those rims just look ugly in my opinion. But to each is own.
