    Must be nice to have that kind of money.

    Here's the kind of truck I would be looking for:

    On another note they ain't got squat, that's the only one I could find in some kind of
    condition that was a half decent price... It needs a bit of work but all the rest were
    high priced and high mileages...
    And it's still not exactly what I would want but...

    I'd be all for keeping the current truck running, it ain't looking real good from my perspective.

    For that kind of cash you can buy a full size. That thing won't have the power or towing capacity I would want.

    thats my thoughts as well.

    Just happens that I read this new article this week.
    not saying its a terrible truck , but a better value would be to just get a full size. consider resale value as well.

    I would reconsider, you could buy a 1/2 ton and set it up like that for 20k. Cool concept as the park district hear uses the ranger with those style beds, but only for a couple of push mowers and trimmers...

    I'm not sure what those go for with a standard bed but i'd venture to say you are paying quite a bit more for that style bed that really wouldn't come in handy at all. When you factor in the weight rating for that truck I mean.

    Geez, is that what the 1994 Dodge rams are going for now?!!! I remember that year was the first year Dodge brought out their new body style and those things were as popular as could be!! Wasnt it like 15 or more years since their last body style change? Everyone kept calling them baby kenworths! Did ya notice the ad said it didnt look that great? I think I could put up with the exterior cosmetics for that price!!
