    Depends on what you're buying the truck for. As a daily driver, family hauler, pavement pounding under warrantee truck obviously new is the way to go. Comfy, rides like a car, 4 wheel drive for the snowy mall parking lots[​IMG]etc etc.

    If you want to wheel it without worrying about it then old solid axle truck all the way.

    My two cents...
