Help Me Buy A Truck

I am driving a car that I hate and its got almost 150k on it and I want to get rid of it. I want to get a USED pickup truck. Like a 2003 or newer. I never owned a truck before and I don't know much about them let alone how to really drive one

I don't feel like searching this site, but I have been looking at the MFG sites.

I only drive a few miles to the train station every day and when we go places like dinner, WI, etc we take our Acura TL. I don't want a diesel or a dually and I don't want a massive truck that I can't park in the driveway @ my townhouse.

I don't have a place to store a trailer, so I want to be able to put a bike in the back. As an option, I still want to be able to tow whenever I can borrow or rent a trailer. I want to be able to put gear and/or people in the cab so I want some room, but it doesn't have to be an ext crew cab. Four door is not a requirement, but it would be nice.

Do I need a long bed (97") or will the standard bed (78") fit a street bike?

I was thinking a GMC 2500 or a Chevrolet Silverado 2500. Do I need it be heavy duty?

Help me out and at least get me pointed in the right direction. I don't know where to start.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

I love my '04 Dakota. V6, 5-speed, 2WD posi. Extended cab. Decent gas mileage. Never got stuck in the snow. Perfect size IMO. Bought her new and I've put 48,000 miles on her without a single problem. Bike fits in the back with the gate down. 6ft or 6-1/2" foot bed. I can't remember

Nissan Titan. Just got one. Love it. I have a crew cab, short bed. Bike fits with gate down. 08 Crew has a long bed option. The interior is bigger then on my old Navigator, front and rear.

Toyota Tundra Nuff said Gives you room for people in the back and will tow anything that you are thinking. Also you can fit 2 full size bikes with all you gear along with a pitbike. That is my next vehicle. I am trading in the Z71 Tahoe for it.

For what you're doing, I don't see why a 1500 wouldn't be enough. A 2500 model would be overkill.

That makes sense. I won't be towing or hauling all that often. I want flexibility, but also something I can handle.

Ok, so I don't need a long bed unless I want the gate closed, right? 'Cause I have been kinda hung up on that because friend said, don't get the short bed if you get ext cab. Get the long bed. So standard bed will work fine for me?

You dont need a heavy duty truck. If this is just for hauling a bike, than a 1/2 ton, or a 3/4 ton is fine. Anything domestic is a good choice. You might want to look into diesel since they are cheaper at the pump and get better fuel mileage. Extended cab might be good for you. A crew cab will be too long for you since you mentioned you want something that has a tight turn radius.

Standard bed works fine with the gate down...they sell supports for the gate as well while it's down if you want to take it a step further. Ford is the number one selling truck for a reason...being around job sites for a living, they make up 70% of work trucks, companies buy trucks based on reliability. It's what Ford does.

Regardless of which way you go, let me know as I've got a family friend that finds and negotiates deals on the CHEAP...gimme a call and I'll let you know what I got my FX4 for.

My 96 S-10 has been a great little truck. It has the 4.3 V6 in it. I've towed a trailer loaded down with motorcycles for years. Loaded and unloaded bikes in the back of it more times than I can even count. I added one helper leafs on the rear suspension and it helped alot with hauling bikes. Good, solid truck still with 250k on it.

But, if you are looking for the lowest maintenance truck out there, find a used Toyota Tacoma with over 100K on it. They run forever. A friend of mine had 400k on his late 80s model when he sold it. Still ran great and the person drove it for a long time after that. Who knows, the thing mite still be running.

You're best off with a chevy S10 with a V6, make sure its a V6 or a Toyota Tacoma.

But who knows Justin. You're Mr. Money bags. After this track weekend coming up you may go all out. Fullsize Tundra with a V-Nose 6X10 Hallmark enclosed trailer with racks for your spare wheels and tires, full tool box, tire warmers, tons of spare parts, brand new pit bull stands, built in work bench, tire changer... the works ya know.

Go ahead buddy, take a hit off the track pipe.

On the Titan, yeh. I can measure if you need it. I really like the Tundra but it's a lot more $$$. You can get a decent 5.6L V8 4x4 Crew Cab Titan for under 25k. The base Tundra still has the crappy 4.7 from last generation.

Standard bed is fine unless you want to be able to haul one of those hitch mounted rail bike stands as well. Standard will have to have tailgate down though. Most 4 doors you have to get a standard bed though.

1500 will do you just fine and if you don't need to tow anything heavy you can even get a cheaper one with a v6 in it. Of course everyone wants the bigger engine though so can't argue with that. Just sucks little more gas.

All the big fullsize trucks are cool.

A van is the way to go man. Ken has that Chevy van with the same motor my S-10 has in it (V6 Vortec 4.3) and it works great for hauling bikes, gear, sleeping in at the track.

Please keep the comments coming. This is helping me out a lot. I don't really have a clue what I am doing. My brother made a comment to me about gearing and that there are so many choices on that and most dealers don't even know what they have. I am buying used - I can't afford new. Is this something I need to be worried about?

This much for sure though. It will be a pickup or a van (maybe) and I only need an option to tow because I will NOT be buying a trailer.

And I am NOT hitting the track pipe. I know what that's all about from watching my bro and I am not going that way.

Oh yeah. And if I get something too nice, my dad and brother will want to use it or lease it from me for the season - that was the first thing they said when I brought it up. No way Jose.

If you just want a little truck for lite duty every once in a while hauling a bike and getting back and forth from the train station and you want it to be LOW maintenance get a TACOMA. Find a mid to late 90s one with 100K on it. BUY IT. They last forever. I would not buy any other truck if mine took a shit rite now.

You might not need to go used. When I got my truck Nissan had up to 8k off on 07's in incentives. A base Titan v8 4x4 crew was around 24k. Base still had power windows, doors, cd, ac etc... A tow package with gearing was $500 more. A fully loaded one with GPS was $32k

You can get an extended cab which has back seats and a mini door. Try out extended cab and crew cab. A crew cab with a long bed isnt easy to drive around town for some because it's long.

You also want to see if you want 4X4 or two wheel drive. Gearing isn't an issue if your not towing. And if your getting a v8 and only towing a motorcycle, than i wouldn't really worry about gearing.

4X$ adds a couple thousand $ to the price of a used truck.

This is the midwest and winters can be a bitch if you go 2 wheel drive invest in some weight for the back. Take a look at models find a year, something that hasn't changed is a good bet. Like this year the Tundra is new and so is the Tacoma, Ford has been redoing things, in fact just about everyone has. Trucks, like cars, like bikes when a new model comes out there are bound to be issues, as a rule I won't buy 1st gen vehicles.
If you go full size stay away from V6 engines in em, usually way underpowered. Mid size usually only come with up to a V6. GMC is nothing more than a luxury version of a Chev. Make sure it has a frame and if it was used as a towing vehicle chances are the tranny has had the shit beat out of it.

Yeah but you pay for it when you first buy a new truck so it is a wash. Also the gass miliage is better with a 4X2 and ins is cheaper. Maint. is also cheaper. i can count on one hand in the last 2 years of me using 4X4 in my Z71.

How long does it take for the plows to clean the roads?? Not long at all. All you need are some decent tires and wieght in the back and you are perfectly fine. Shit if I can drive a G35 coupe in the winter with winter tires i am sure a 4X2 truck can handle it.

how soon are you looking to buy?

Another option is to do what I did ... buy at the end of the year or early into the next. Get a "last year model" that the dealerships are trying to get off their lot to make room for next year's models. Then I even purchased the GM's car so it had about 5k miles on it already. So I got a basically "brand new" truck at 0% APR for 60 months but with a used truck price

Regardless of which way you go, let me know as I've got a family friend that finds and negotiates deals on the CHEAP...gimme a call and I'll let you know what I got my FX4 for.
If they were buying reliability they'd be buying Toyotas . Actually they probably wouldn't be buying Toyotas because union guys would cry about driving a "foreign" truck.

Buy a Tundra. For what you describe it will work perfect. A street bike fits fine with the tailgate down. It will fit 3 dirtbikes in the bed. The backseat on the extended cab is not huge but nobody has ever complained about sitting in mine. I've towed my friend's enclosed trailer (it's 12' long I think) with 3 dirtbikes and all our gear in it, and 3 200 pound dirtbags sitting in the truck and it towed great. As an added bonus, it won't turn into a rattling shitbox after 50000 miles. FYI mine is an 04 so it's the previous body style, the new ones are bigger. Mine is the perfect size for me, I don't want a newer one because they made them larger.
