    Did I mention, that I bought this truck from a salvage place for $5000.00 and its a 2008 Work Truck, well I think I got a really awesome deal on this truck, mechanically this truck is in very sound condition, the first owner was an idiot, who tried to do insurance fraud and lit fire in the bed and the fire came in through the rear window and burnt the cabin area, however the wiring is still in place...but would need some work.. i found all the part required to replace in the cabin and the rear window and windshield from the salvage place for $800.00 ..So the overall cost of buying this truck with parts was $5800.00

    Also i found someone who will paint the truck and install parts for $1200.00 which I think it a great price.. So i am really excited.. I think i might need some more accessories here and there but thats where I am now..


    I am looking forward to getting this thing on the road.. it only has 58K miles on it and the engine is a beast!!!!

    please let me know your advise and comments
