Asking for more vehicle advice

Recommended Posts

I would have a tough time paying 7k for a vehicle with 100k miles.

Are you going to use the vehicle for anything else besides a tow vehicle? If you plan on hauling stuff go with the Ford, but take into consideration the stepside bed is able to haul less crap. Plus when you own a pickup everyone you know will "need to borrow it" at some point in time. If you have alot of buddies then maybe the Jeep is the way to go. 100k isn't alot of miles IF the truck was cared for properly. Check the carfax report. Another thing to consider  at 100k it may need tires which will be another $600-800.00 for either vehicle.

I got them down to 5700 on the truck. It has 4 new tires and 3 used ones in the back that the owner included with it. The ball joints were replaced.

I wouldn't pay anything over 5K for a truck over 100K in mileage. But it would depend on year and model as well. 

1980 - 100k vs 2005 with 100k is different.

I'm taking it to my mechanic tomorrow for them to go over the truck. If it looks good I think my search for a truck is over.

I think 5700 is a good deal. It looks clean. Id say pull the trigger if your mechanic says its ok.

Agreed.

Look at it this way...You were comfortable paying 7k for a truck you can get for 5700. You can fix a good bit of stuff or buy a good bit of gas for $1300.

I need to change transmission fluid and coolant. I also need to get the ac working. the compressor turns on and off fine. They think there is a small leak. I also got 4 tires with mid tread plus a set of bucket seats and a center console. There are some areas with rust too. I am going to wire brush it and spray rust inhibitor.
