    I think you have a few miles left on it before you break it in.
    Congrats on the purchase.

    the owner got rear-ended & the cost to fix the bed & bumper was more than the car was worth so i got it for cheap. Oh and i call my truck the beanermobile (i don't want to offend anyone + im mexican lol)

    I wou;dn't worry too much about offending too many folk. Probably an easy fix. Maybe need some simple welding if the bed is cracked. Shame you don't live closer, I'd do it for you.

    Well, Hanover isn't too far from here, but your truck is still pretty far away.
