Tell us about your shopping experience..and your new truck!
LOL No. Mine will be used as intended. Been using a 97 Sierra with only rear wheel drive so far (not mine, belongs to company) and it just can't quite cut it for what I need. Plus I keep getting it stuck
The new ecoboost F-150's seem kinda cool, the idea of them at least. But not exactly a Ford fan, and I needed something that can pull my tractor/whatever future hijinx I may get into (demo derby!).
Shopping experience was pretty straightforward. Saw it online, called, had my father go look at it (conveniently he visits Texas once or twice a month for work), he gave it the ok and a certified cheque!
As far as telling about the new truck... well its a 6.6 turbo diesel V8, 4x4, crew cab (seats 5), and has the Z71 off road package. Its a 2007.
it is pretty loaded, basically everything but nav. I wasn't actually looking for something with all those options but it fit the bill and the price seemed right. I need it because I am building a new home on some land I bought a few months ago and and doing alot of the work myself. Also, I bought a small tractor that I will need to take care of the property/build stuff/wreck stuff/drive into town cause that seems like what you do in a town of probably around 500.
