    I have had more than a few offers on this truck. I paid $ 3500.00 for it 3 years ago with 65,000 on it. It was clean, still is. Came across another two years ago more rust, more miles, but it was the same truck again listed for $ 3500.00 Should have bought that one.

    We like this truck...engine purrs like a kitten and never fails. Not much power...but that is only because it is still stock.

    Keeping my eyes open for another.

    That's what I'm talking about! Pull into the landscape materials place and the loader will go to you first because you're not going to whine about a piece of mulch landing on your hood. You need to replace that bumper with a used 2x4, leave the nails in it. Lol

    LOL, yep, you're right!

    In Bethesda Maryland, we have a supplier that is as busy as all get-out, long established, and crammed onto a small, weird-shaped property. Its muddy, dusty, and a cluster (Beep). Every time I go there I think to myself, "thank god I don't have a new truck"

    Hopefully the customers won't notice the new truck and think I'm making too much. I tried keeping it as close as possible in size and color. Mouse fart gray is my fleet color now. 2017 Taco:
