What is the year & make of your truck, and how many miles on the original engine and transmission...a chance to talk about your truck, not downgrade someone else's ...

After much research, I really like the 2023 Nissan Frontier SV with the following options. 

- Convenience package
- Technology package 
- Premium package 

I've only seen one of them in the wild (he was in the lane next to me on Cicero Avenue). I need to find one parked somewhere and chat up the owner...

I understand your point rc.
The Frontier has a "tow package" available, such as it is.
I only would be towing my 16.25' fishing boat.

Fonzie What i notice is some trucks exclude the required cooling equipment to actually tow as much as advertised so watch out for that.  Generally need a transmission cooler or oil cooler and I know some sale people do not know this either so dont depend on their knowledge.

The Nissan Frontier got a complete makeover for 2022. It now has a naturally aspirated V6 with 310 hp.
Can tow 6000 lbs+ .
It is being favorably compared to the Tacoma and usually comes out as the better vehicle...
I'm considering it for a retirement truck.

Anybody own one ?

I can remember those early 60s truck beds with the step on the side and the single layer of metal for a tail gate.  Good stuff.
The current trend of big puffy looking trucks is gettin long in the tooth.  Wouldnt surprise me to see retro style trucks to start getting manufactured again along with some El Camino style models.

Here are three examples here in the neighborhood in Mesa I am staying. They are on a route I walk every day and all are driven multiple times a week. That step side Ford is sweet.

Arthur, I couldn’t agree more. My wife and I have spent a great deal of time in AZ over the years. If you spend any time away from the touristy places you are shocked at the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s trucks that look like new.  
Salt is such a corrosive chemical on vehicles and you get used to its effects in northern winters if you live there year round.

I am spending the month of March in Mesa, AZ. If I were looking to buy a used truck over 5-10 years old, I would buy here. Since you are going to pay big $, it would be worth the trip to me. Having spent $900 on gas lines 4 years ago and $2,400 three years ago on all new brake lines, calipers, rotors and ABS pump on my Tahoe due to Midwest rust, a rust free AZ truck would be a joy. I see lots of 70's & 80's survivors here even, being daily drivers.

Cash for clunkers destroyed the affordable used vehicle market. It still hasn’t recovered to my amazement.

Hocky, EXPECT TO PAYTOO MUCH! Then u won’t be disappointed.. any pick up with decent looks and 4 wheel drive is outrageous. Regardless of milage and age. If you see one you like check Kelly Blue book (kbb.com) and thats a starting point. Then cars.com, 
Auto trader, and the like… good luck . Don’t  be afraid to ask again here once you have specific year make model-no one here will try to hose ya. We’ve all been there.
Ps. BE SURE TO CHECK “CAR PROBLEMS  . Com” it will tell you about specofic flaws to watch for in that year, goes way back to older models as well

What can one expect to spend on a used 15 year old F150 or Silverado in decent working/running condition? I see a lot of disparity in asking price, and there are obvious ads where you can tell it's a mechanic special, but for something with a decent looking/non-rusted out body and engine that's been maintained? Never been in the market for a pick up before so I am not really sure. All I know is there's no way we can afford new, and honestly, I'd prefer something that I'm not going to flip out if it gets scratched/dinged when it's asked to do truck things away from pavement.
