Not right color but under 100k miles is tough for that year/budget

My first truck at 16 (4 years ago) was a 2004 f150 supercrew. Its been a decent truck, with some repairs here and there. Gas mileage sucks but it beats spending another 10k for a truck that gets another 5mpg

Thank you. FUNNY. That is pretty much what I modeled the "want" after. I was supposed to go see/drive/buy this weekend, but he sold it yesterday.

We are flexible on mileage and year. in his view, he wants a cool truck to throw in his spearfishing gear, fishing poles, and pick up chicks. Mom and Dad want safety and reliability.

Thanks for reply and suggestion.

I just bought a THT members F-250 this past weekend and fixing to list my F-150 just cleaned it out and plan on taking some pics tomorrow and put it on the interweb. I can send you pics and my bottom dollar so I don't waist your time if you would like. I am in Savannah Ga. but would meet in Jax if you want it.
2006 F-150 4x4 Lariat White 129k miles
Tan leather Driver seat bottom has wear all other like new
Leveling kit
After market rims and Nitto's 33" 2yrs old 15k miles on them
Moon roof
Tinted windows
Tool box
Programer only used tow program
After market grill and head lights
Spark plugs changed at 90k
K&N air filter
Transmission serviced every 50k
Brakes and rotors last year
just a few small chips and a couple small dings
I drive a company truck so most miles are from road trips pulling a flats boat.

Thanks James

I have a 1999 Toyota Tacoma 2.7L TRD 4x4. No major repairs other than having the head rebuilt, 280K miiles. It pulls my 14ft jon boat ok, and does good on gas, it is my first truck, so if you could find one of those around, they will last as long as you take care of them.

Thank you for the response. I have gotten a lot of great PM's from the community and are settling on an F150 (my personal favorite and everyday drive).

Impressive mileage.
