    Decided to sell my 1989 Ford. Been advertised for a few weeks, and I can't even get a call. Is the economy THAT bad. I remember when I was looking for a decent 1/2 ton. 1 ton payload. The ones under $5,000 were gone right when the ad went up. This thing looks nice. Supercab, longbed, plush interior, mech. sound. Nice white paint with the xlt trim.

    What are you asking? Around here that truck in 2wd goes for around 3k road-worthy. If it has air. If its a stick w/o air you will live with it.

    Can't post that - contitutes advertising. But it is below the number you mentioned. Maybe it is just a bad time to sell, but like I said, when I was looking, all of the decent trucks were gone days after they went in the paper. Yes, there are decent deals out there for new ones-o% financing and all, but you still gotta make that payment.
