Thats tough man. Try negotiating with the dealer on a good trade in value before telling them to boost their confidence in it. Try to get the payments around where you are now and no money down

I would demand new tires man. Those goodyear radials are straight shit tires. besides, it looks like they are 235's or around there, I thought that lvl 2 had 4.10's...? youll get shit mileage with the small tires.

I have dealt with the original GWR and the new ones, that you have. They connected up the pattern. Blocked it up. It is horrible in any kind of weather, weak side walls, poor tread life. For that kinda money, it should have a new set of BFG's on it

just pitch it to them professionally. Show them you really really want it, and took your time to really think out something convinving. They should respect that

just go for it, if you want to lift your truck and play in the mud you have to have 4x4, i mean ive seen lifted 2wd trucks, but whats the point?

Go for it.
