    Looking for a truck

    Need a pickup for building supplies, not really for everyday transportation.

    This one has the features I'm looking for: http://humboldt.craigslist.org/car/448941354.html

    Seems a bit much but the exterior looks in pretty good condition (last concern actually though). The shell I can do without but the lumber rack is a must have.

    The clutches last about 125K miles as do the timing belts. Still, Toyota small trucks are rock solid. Do an Ebay search for similar vehicles, see how the prices match up.

    That's not a truck. That's a baby truck.
    The bumber sticker should read, "when I grow up I want to be a ____".
    Find a F-250 and be done with it.
