I don't need a new truck, but was considering it. I've got the truck in my sig and have finally saved enough to pay it off. It's only got 116k miles on it. But was considering getting something newer. The only problem is, the ones in my price range have more miles than my truck now. These are the only 2 trucks ive looked at online. Not looking too hard, but there relatively close and i happened to stumble across them in an auto trader magazine. Take a look and give me some opinions please!!!!

I'd really like a DMAX van for going to the swap meets, but can't afford both!

He gave me a car fax for the maroon one, now I know carfax doesn't really mean squat, but it did mention it was bought from an auction down south. I'm not sure if that's something that I should be concerned about or not.

I agree with you on that one. I'm still trying to decide if I should go look at them or not. I HATE dealing with sales people.

Some just trade them in and buy a new one then the dealership action off....I've known guys that had theirs flooded in port, got them running and unloaded before trouble sets in.....

Id stay away from black unless you religiously wax your vehicles. The paint on the nbs trucks are horrible and show scratches like crazy. A poorly aimed sneeze will scratch the clearcloat.

But as for an lmm in general, IMO they're the best dmax made yet. Just damn near no issues to worry about as long as you get one that came from a good home. They're solid trucks.
