Gibson Truck World?

Ok, so stationed out of Ft. Stewart, GA...but relocating to Ft. Drum, NY shortly after I return from Iraq. Searching for a Powerstroke....came across their website. I'm just wondering if anyone on this site has dealt with Gibson and what their experience was. From looking at their website, they look promising but I prefer word of mouth instead of flashy advertising!

I would steer clear, I have seen some major junk come out of gibson and that other big truck dealer too, cant remember the name of the other one. Your best bet is to find a private owner.

You probably talking about Nations. Anyhow i decided to steer clear of them when i bought mine due to their prices and the fact that 90% of the time they don't post the mileage of the truck.

I dunno I ended up going with a local private dealer.

Good Luck.

If you want to know about Gibson PM me and I will tell you how they screwed me. I owned my truck for 9 weeks and have over $8 in repairs and their warrenty is worthless.

I went to possibly trade mine in for a half ton. they do not negotiate the price of the truck at all, they spray paint the bottom of the trucks black and call it undercoating. im not sure why but i think it is to hide something. the salesman spoke english but i couldnt understand him cause of his really thick southern accent, and im from the south. they were nice and had some nice looking trucks but i walked away in my SD, thank god i didnt trade down.
