    Well, what'
    s wrong with what I got, is that it belongs to my brother in law and he has been letting me use it in exchange for mowing and spraying his lawn. Now his 16 yo daughter is wanting a car and he wants to trade it in on her car. So it leaves my up @#%^ creek!!!

    well, buy it from him if its a good truck! if its not broke, don't fix it...i always say..make him a offer...probably won't get nothing for trade in..your brother in law will make out if you buy it!

    I'd buy a 3/4 ton (2500) truck, either a Ford, Chevy or Gmc. Chevy HD or Ford SD would be at the top of my list. How much you got to spend?

    This has lots of issues, have replaced thermostat, water pump, truck still overheats when I drive more than 15 miles, not too much fun when it is 100 degrees here. I am looking in the 6-8k range
