I recently got a promotion, and will be getting a company vehicle again. I had a 2016 Subaru Outback for a daily driver, and didnít want that just sitting around, so I figured I would either sell it or trade it on a pickup. I havenít owned a pickup for about 20 years!
I forgot how much I hate shopping for used cars...too many variables. With new, you just compare prices!
Anyway, my budget kept growing (started out wanting a beater). I ran across a 2013 Chevy 2500hd crew cab with 18,000 miles on it, and in pristine conditionóone Owner. Set up exactly the way I wanted! So I made the leap. I would have took a 1 ton, but they are as rare as henís teeth. Itís utterly amazing the glut of 1/2 ton trucks out there! I bet there is at least 100-200 used 1/2 tons for every 3/4 ton...then 10-15 3/4 tons for every 1 ton. Iím sure glad itís over; it kind of consumes you! If you donít jump on the good ones they tend to sell quick.
Now I need a 16 foot gooseneck livestock trailer, and a deck over, and a small utility trailer....
