I'm thinking about this truck: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...&item=4512288384&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEWA:IT Item number 4512288384 if the linky no worky... It's fairly close to me, so I'm going to try to go check it out later today or tonight. I talked to the seller already, and it sounds like a pretty good truck. My uncle had one, I should call him to see what failed on his truck, I know at least the idler arm was completely shot after ten years. I *really* don't have $1k to spend on a truck, especially this season and especially with my wife breathing down my neck about our driveway not being done...But my brother's taking back his car after christmas to use on his base instead of his brand new car (I sold my commuter car and have been using his), and I have really needed an open-top cargo vehicle about 100 times in the last 6 months. I wo'nt bid without seeing it first, though, too hard to come by $1k right now to fool around with it... Anyone's thoughts? Would you hit it or pass?
