correct. Once you've had a 4wd you get used to not worrying about if you're gonna get stuck. I use my truck during hunting season to drop corn and bring the deer from the woods and need 4wd when i go through the field. I've also needed 4wd on a few other occasions as well when fishing and offroading with a few of my buddies

How about a 2nd gen? http://fayetteville.craigslist.org/cto/4633409785.html

Or a 98? http://fayetteville.craigslist.org/cto/4638047758.html (seems too cheap. Something must be wrong).

Everything is right except the price http://onslow.craigslist.org/cto/4595267295.html

If you like the color red and no pictures http://onslow.craigslist.org/cto/4636452313.html

No

Thats a little weird. I bet the trans is slipping or something.

High miles and looks like torsion keys

And no pictures scare me...

----------

Looking at this one. The 5th wheel hitch worries me though. But its a level 2 and its blue!

That FX4 loos pretty sweet. Blue trucks are pretty awesome

So what is your budget? I was looking for sub $5 trucks.

I am also down in Onslow county frequently and can check out any trucks you want a set of eyes on.

I like the level two. I think that would be a good truck for you if it's in good shape. I found a couple level twos down this way, I'll look again at the prices

thanks and the black interior and blue seats are what I want so its perfect. The sonic blue just makes it that much better. I need to test drive it before i really decide on anything
