Thoughts on trading in for a truck like this?

If everything goes right for me financially wise, I can trade in my truck as a down payment, and finance on a nice truck that has all the nice work done to it, because im sick of trying to make my truck nice and then regretting what i bought. So what are your guys' thoughts on this truck?

Well if that is what you are into then that fine looks good all i can say get the Extended Warranty they offer for only one reason looks like who ever had it could have a heavy right foot. Need to get the vin # and get someone at Ford to run an Oasis Report to see what has been fixed at Ford and if it was a problem child.

If I were looking at the truck you have, VS the one you want to buy, my gut would be to buy the unit you have now...............the more modified a vehicle is, usually more headaches. I like the sweet old man's truck as a purchase, then start from there. my .o2, no offense meant, just how I play it................and so far it has worked well for me.

Ok I get it... Yes this truck has low miles, but does it sound like its "done right"? I mean seriously unless you get some paperwork it sounds like it was just bolted on and driven to all heck.

If it makes sense $ wise then go for it... I just don't see how you could think this truck will be worry free vs your truck from its posting..

I would am always hesitant to buy modified vehicles because I know what coulda been done to them, I wouldnt mind buying from a member because they most likely know about maintenance, what to look for and what not to do. I bought mine completely stock from an old lady to try and avoid any big issues like head gaskets, transmission, injectors, etc.

Just check all your temps and look the vehicle over since you know what to look for now and good luck if thats the kinda truck you like

Seems a little low priced to me for that few miles and the mods it has. That leads me to suspect that they know that there is something wrong with it. I would check it out with an Insight and be very suspicious. Get an Oasis report. Crawl all over that thing and be very cautious and pay attention to EVERYTHING. Good luck.

Skyjacker is junk. Look for a truck done with quality components. I'm not seeing anything special there.

How much of a down payment would you be looking at for your truck (trade value)

IMO that truck at that price doesnt do it for me. yes its a crew cab and yea it has a lift and low miles but really unless its what youve always wanted or really needed a crewcab asap i would rather take a loan to do stuff to your current truck vs a loan on a new truck with the possibility of it having issues also.
