    I saw an amazingly clean K5 today and I am pondering to ask the dealer if he would trade my two K5s for it. I dont know if the dealer would even do it but I think I am going to try. SHOULD I DO IT????? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    What year is the yellow one? Truthfully, without information, I would say keep what you have. The dealer's tend to "Scab" up trucks badly. It might be full of bondo. If it's non fuel injected I would say you are not much better off.

    Bottom line. Check it out close before making a deal. Dealers can be treaturous.

    My thoughts /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif or at least a TH400, if its a slushbox 700R4, Id say no better off. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
