    I sold it last January for $6000.00. It had 196,000 miles on it. I loved that truck, and if it wasn't such a pain in the ass to haul a child around in, I would still have it.

    ^And a follow up to my above post: What did you pay for it (if your not the original owner)?

    I bought mine for $14k with 80k miles. Mint. So it lost ~$11k in 80k miles. Or you could say I gained $11k, cause this thing is gonna go forever
