Default Picked up a used truck

An extremely anal retentive Major I work with sold me his truck. I bought it site unseen, he wanted $1,000 and I know he takes care of his stuff. It has been dealer maintained and garage kept. May give it to my 16 year old son (he wants a bonny or a wrangler) but it is a bit tougher to drive with the 5 speed and it does need some tenderness to shift smoothly.

Although this guy is anal retentive and only let the dealer do the maintenance- he is also tight with his bucks and the only option this has is air conditioning.167,000 miles.

Have not told the wife yet- as I still have a year of payments on the 2007 F-350 that sits in a garage.

Looks like a nice truck. Reminds me of a farm or work truck. Bench seat, basic interior. Looks to be in good shape.

Yes, its an XL, 1994. It spent most of its life at FT Riley KS and FT Knox, KY. Looks like a farm truck- yet looks like the most it ever carried was some army backpacks, etc. I added the left and right pics now that I am at work. To the train in and it wouldn't let me add those pics on the train for some reason.

Checked out a few Ford forum boards- and have to say the quality of the posts on this forum and the responses are generations above the Ford Forums- wonder if we know how fortunate we are to have this forum!

Best kind of truck there is. Looks outstanding for the number of miles on it.

Thanks for the compliments.

I won't even take my lifted Wrangler mudding- guess I am anal about keeping em nice also...

Just hope I don't go overboard and try to make it extra perfect and dump a lot of money into it- I have a bad habit of it.

BTW- I am at Bumper City at this moment- they are installing the GXP bumper, will post some pics- wish I had taken a before pic....
