    I see them sell as little as 2 grand and as high as 6 grand here in Arizona. It just depends on the condition. Look for a mechanically sound truck even if its dented a little. Paint and bodywork is of no use to four wheelers. Show trucks dont go off road. As to the pros and cons, there are no cons. You can go off raod comfortably , and pop your top and move your furniture like if you had a pickup. The best of both worlds!!

    pros:
    topless! get him out in one on a nice sunny day with the top off, he'll have one in no time

    comfortably seats 4, can easily seat 5 if need be, compared to the 3-4 of a pickup...

    4wd! i've never had good luck off roading 2wds, and man i hate it when people lift 2wds, well i've seen some prerunners that are 2wd and put my truck to shame, but they're limited on the terrains where they work well...

    you're in cali so your 2 grand will go a lot farther in getting a solid truck than in the rusty areas


    cons:
    probably a little worse gas mileage if he gets a 4wd...but if hes concerned, get a diesel, that'll even beat his 2wd on mileage, and sounds cool too..

    they're addictive, wait, that should go in the pros too
