35k miles on your truck? damn!

How much to sniff your passenger seat?
you can sniff mine :D

45K, non smoker but still smells like the old ladies snatch from the break in process

I'd say if you like the looks of the truck, and can get a fair deal, go for it man. I haven't had any problems with my LLY so far (168,000ish miles) The only thing everyone says to do to the LLY is replace the factory mouth piece, which I have yet to do.

i'd say find out how much, because if you have more than enough to upgrade the truck a decent amount, then i think it would be worth it, it'd be like 4wd, or a performance truck.... i'd take performance...

I don't think i would trade just keep what you have. It's pry payed off or almost so just save your money and then maybe you can get something new or newer or maybe even just buy a older 4x4. The miles are just way to different.

I would do it. I personally will not own a truck unless it is 4WD. Too often do I need it in a pinch and am very glad I have it. If you know how long your dad has had it and treated it then I would say you are getting a truck you know the whole history of and not much to worry about. Get the 4x4 and be glad that you did. Yours might have less miles, but I would buy a higher mileage 4x4 any day over a low mileage 2wd for the same price..just my opinion.

I would keep the truck....drop it and take your dads truck when you need 4wd.

Everyone wins........well at least you do...
