How many miles does it have? I paid that for my '06 with 70k on it about a month ago. I may have paid too much too but I thought it was a decent price.

What options does yours have? Mines the Lariat that's hard loaded leather heated seats and all.

I was just making the point that he gave just as much for his as I gave for mine. Nothing at all against his truck but I feel I got a better truck for the price. But he may have a lot lower mileage I dont know. Mine is pretty high mileage for an '06.
Again not putting his truck down in any way!!

no I wasnt saying you were.my bad if I came across that way..I agree with you 100%

leaf sprung trucks are alot cheaper to lift..

But I would rather have the smoother ride and tighter turning radius that you get with 05^

worthless is such a strong word. if you can drive that thing and be proud of it and its a reliable vehicle then thats worth a lot. yeah you might not have gotten a real good deal but all you can do now is love it and make it your own and be glad your not driving a duramax or cummins. its time for some upgrades and mods!!
