The year is not important on class 8 trucks. Older can be better, how it was taken care of is. No matter what you buy you will need brakes, tires, and other fix up items. The price point you are looking at will put you into a truck that is ready for some maintenance money. I put $5000 into both trucks as soon as I bought them regardless. Thats why they were not $75k to $100k.
