Default What are your opinions...

...if everything is equal at both Dealerships as far as my trade in and they both drop a grand of their asking price?


Truck 1

Truck 2

Personally I prefer truck 1 because of the lower miles. Besides that truck 2 is only about $30 a month cheaper. Just looking for some opinions before I spend a bunch of $$$.

the milage differance is'nt that much for a diesel anyway take your choice have you looked under both of them make sure they don't have mud up in the frame, ontop of the trans and other areas. some of these come from the west leasing companys that are used in the oilfeilds where red clay and gets in everywhere then a pain to get out after it drys. That causes problems up here... trust me I have hauled a few back this way to know.

Truck #1 for sure.

Truck #2 looks like someone bought it and lifted it, chipped it and probably beat on it. Ford autos don't like abuse; I think you'd have better luck with the first truck.

Truck #1, I perfer leather to cloth, but from the photos the first truck looks unmolested, I think it would be a better buy...

We decided on truck 1. They gave me the offer I was looking for on mine. Just have to sign the papers at the bank Monday as long as they go through.

Should have the new truck by Monday night.

It sure feels like driving a bus. Although it rides smoother than our current truck.


They claim the truck was an old mans truck. The body isnt 100% perfect but it can be cleaned up. THe interior is very clean. I was more concerned with that than the body. I can clean that up. I hate dirty interiors.

Nick, I think he called you old. That causes amusement to be stirred in me. :tonka:

As long as amusement is the only thing that is stirring.

The white truck is gone

Truck 2 was a piece of crap. The bed had a few rust holes in it, the seats had holes in them, and the body was rusty all over. They put a set of 36" Iroks on it and tried to raise the price $1,000.


Brought truck 1 home today. First fill up=$141.70 Boy am I glad I will only be driving it once a week or so.

The only problem I could see with truck #1 was it wasn't a dodge. Although truck #2 seemed to have similar problems.





Seriously though, nice new truck! I love getting new to me vehicles that make driving feeling different again

Oh, yeah, and I wouldn't buy a car from Lasco Ford to save my life.
