    I would not consider that, but if it works for you go for it.

    That is a lot for a truch that old and with those miles, I guess it must be in excellent shape. That unit won't get good gas mileage ours gets around 7mpg. You can get a pretty good work truck for $7500, like a F150.

    twice too high. i spent $5000 on my 97 ranger with 63000 miles few years ago. i know its a bit smaller, but you can find a better deal. if that truck was diesel maybe $5000. gas... prob $3000. just guessing off hand, but would look it up on kbb.

    With gas prices as high as they are, do you need that big of a truck? Or can you get away with a 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton pickup?
