I know this seems like (or maybe it is) some sort of advertising thread, but I am looking to trade in my current daily driver (2002 Mazda Tribute ES) for a nice used or new 4x4 truck.  

It's all leather, moonroof etc., every option.  Looking for a nice used or new truck, extended or quad cab, prefer fullsize.  I figure I'd ask here, because I'm only looking in VA.  So if you know someone, or a reputable dealer/cousin/aquaintance send me a note.  Oh, my rig has 46k on it and all maintenence records.

I have the trade plus about $10k to put toward a vehicle.  A nice Chevy Avalanche would be sweet

How did you know I am a jeep whore?  I sold my built TJ and am having withdrawals.

You could buy my old ('91) F-150 and just keep the Tribute...

It does need new front rotors, which I have OEM rotors on order and good pads waiting to go on.  Price is with all that installed.  If you have any more interest shoot me an IM, if not thanks for asking!

If you want something a little smaller I have a 2002 Chevy S-10:

Extended Cab
4.3L V-6
Automatic Transmission
Right at 70k miles

It isn't F-150 size, but it is a good truck...

I appreciate the offer, but I need a full size (will be towing tractor, boat, jetski's, atv's, etc.)

Kubota = heavy!

The S-10 can cover most of that (depending on the boat), but I am pretty sure the Kubota is a lost cause.

ATV's and JetSkis are cake.

Just did a quick eBay search.  Don't laugh, I bought my truck on eBay

I don't know what your particular taste is, but here are a 4 quick finds.

1999 Chevrolet Silverado Extended Cab K1500 5.7L V8

1999 Dodge Ram Dually 3500 5.9L Cummins Diesel, Manual Transmission

2004 Dodge Ram Crew Cab 2500 5.9L Cummins Diesel, A/T

I don't know if it HAS to be a pick-up or not, but... 2001 Ford Excursion 6.8L (they say V8 gas... I think it's the Triton V10 gas)

In my opinion, the '99 Silverado might not be enough to tow a large boat.  It'll be a good truck though.  For the 1500 series, this was the last year of the older body style so they had things figured out.  It's more or less exactly like my '96, with a different bed and an extended cab.  My '96 is still running very strong @ 155,000 miles.  The '99 Ram is a good bet if you don't mind the dually part.  The engines in those are very strong and you never really have to worry about the manual transmission.  Also, I think that's the truck that automatically revs up the engine when you let your foot off the clutch.  The 2004 Ram is exactly what my brother owns.  It's not a full crew cab, it's a little uncomfortable for me (5'9"), but wouldn't be bad for younger kids.  The Excursion is a gov't trade in, so it's kind of a risk.  But hey, an Excursion for what's looking to around $15,000 sure ain't a bad deal.  If it is the Triton V10 engine, that's the same engine used in the E-series vans that I used to drive as shuttles back in high school... there's plenty of power there, even when loaded with 15 passengers.  Those things were still going strong at 150,000 miles and they were verrrrrrrry abused.

If you aren't familiar/comfortable with eBay, let me know.

Here are s'more, I'll add 'em as I see 'em.
2000 Ford Extended Cab F250 7.3L Diesel, A/T - brother almost purchased one of these.  I've driven one 7.3L Diesel in the mountains of Bath County, and nothing slowed it down.  Ever.  I'm a big fan.
2002 Chevrolet Crew Cab K2500HD 8.1L Gas, A/T - Nice.    This one will need dual exhaust.    In N.Carolina though

Maverick, thanks man!  I emailed the guy in warrenton about the F250, that's what I'm looking for!  gas mileage be damned!
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:54:20 AM EDT
Welcome.  Ya might want to call him though, seeing as how the auction ends in ~9 hours.  I'd hate to see some Yankee* steal your truck from under you

I didn't even see it was Turbo Diesel, that puppy will scream at you when it turns those things on.  I love that sound.

*if you were offended by this, relax dammit.

got an email back, so I might talk to him later today.  The 1999 silverado is right down the road from me, so that might be good since I could buy it and keep the mazda for gas mileage.  I suppose we'll see :)
