I believe in TN you pay sales tax on the difference in the sale price of your old truck and the purchase price of your new truck. That said, again I believe, both transactions need to happen within 30 days of each other or you forfeit and pay on the total purchase price.
I'd look it up to be safe. I'm just going from memory from certain states I've bought and sold vehicles.
