I'm not fooled by the shipping price on ebay, so you're wrong about that.
But now I'll answer this statement: Kickstand's truck may be better, but I'm NOT buying a 7 or 8k dollar truck. Just isn't happening. I'm glad you think his truck is a better than one for $1500...... otherwise it probably shouldn't be for sale for $6500 more....
$5500 more... How's that accounting working out for you again?
My point was, and you clearly missed it, it will work better for your trip, and be actually worth selling when you're done.
I'll share some advice I got from my father when I was looking for a car at 16... "People don't get ahead buying junk"
We seem to be close to the same age at least, but come on man, you're willingly making this exponentially more complicated than it needs to be. Take a step back, actually look at what you think you are "saving" and ask yourself the question. "Is saving "$X" worth all of this hassle and time?"
Out of curiosity how much do you think you will save vs the $700 bill for shipping?
I'm sure you put it at least one post but my brain hurts.
Lastly...No one ever got ahead by buying shit vehicles for important jobs.
