    DK trucks

    Well not everything can be done in a Toyota, and after 3 years of not having a full size truck things had to change...



    Left my place last Sunday at 2:30pm, got back from Surrey at 3...ugh.

    3/4 ton turbo diesel, 5 speed 4x4, 3/4 ton with 1T suspension for that oh-so-soft ride, 9000# warn winch. No electronics on this one, should see 250-300hp and 900+ lb/ft for less than 1K, hahaha...

    Or you could have said "sorry, my kidnap victims keep kicking my elbow, it made me drop my crack pipe and swerve"

    Yeah, I've heard the same - the truck I used to haul it home with is a '93 model of the same truck (except an auto), and got 18 mpg hauling a heavy t/a trailer there at 110-120km/h. I didn't check mpg on the return trip, I didn't care.
    And 1200 bucks was too good to pass up...

    WTF 1200? What was wrong with it? Or is it just really high k's which dont mean crap.
    I wanted that exact truck for ages, but people ask stupid amounts of money for them, or they're automatics.

    As for my truck its like the little sister haha. Its a 1990 Dakota 4x4 SPORT! V6 with a 5 speed. Its actually for sale right now, but im having issues selling it. I dont want to let it go haha.

    Well not much is wrong...the clutch start circuit isn't letting it start. Admittedly, i bought it without hearing it run, which I normally never do. Other than tha, the guy had to sell it because his appt management told him he had until the end of this month to fix it or dump it. It was his dad's truck, it's got 260K on it, and no mods whatsoever. Yeah, 1200 was a steal - I've had 3 guys offer to buy it, and I've only had it for 1 week!

    I sure wish I had pics of all my other trucks...I kick myself for not taking any pics of them.

    I dont know about kamloops, but in vic those trucks go for $5000 to $10,000 depending on the condition. That and most of them have over 300,000 kms which isnt really high. Ive seen a few at well over 600,000 and going strong with no major internal engine work.
    What im trying to say is im super jealous of yo pimp ride.

    Thanks man... yeah typically Kamloops has 483% higher prices for used vehicles than anywhere else, which is why I went to surrey to pick this one up, haha. This was one of those fluke once in a blue moon deals i happened to stumble upon.
    Thank-you craigslist...
