I wouldn't waste my time on another truck. It'll take time to find, time to fix, time to walk home when it breaks down. Not to mention cost to buy, cost repair and cost to insure, cost to license, cost to tow home after it breaks down.

Whats wrong with the truck you got now?
If you don't want to use it why have it?

$500 dollar vechiles turn into $5,000 vechiles real fast.

Think of cost of ownership rather than just purchase price.

$500 won't buy you much of a truck, but it will buy you a lot of repair bills. You'd be better off just to stay with one truck and keep that $500 in the bank.

Don't buy someone else heartaches! A neighbor down the road purchased 2 used vehicles a month ago and they both sit broken down in the lawn.

This is $200 and will require the same amount of pushing force as a pickup for <$500

I buy other people's junk quite a bit but only if I can fix them myself. It isn't always enough to know how to fix it though. You had better do your research on parts costs and availability first. You won't get much for $500 most times but they are out there. Craigslist is a good place to start.


Wish I had more time to trap....

I can't tell if you're being facetious but you'd be lucky to get an afternoon out of that rig trapping in our part of the country.

So your going road trapping and your thinking of buying $500.00 truck to do It.. And your targeting $2.00 coon $3.00 mink and $2.rats. Don't do It.

Used vehicle prices are currently insane. 3k wont even get you much any more. I have been looking for 2 months now.

I can't read the word "vehicle" without thinking of the word "vechile" thanks to these threads.

In order to find a deal you must find something nobody else wants or can fix themselves. I just bought a jeep for.$700 that needed a new rear end. The pinion gear had sheared of so it was undrivable. Guy wanted $1500. I showed up with cash and a trailer. I sold the Jeep I was driving ( that I had $400 into) for $1200. I only have $850 into the new old keep and it is awesome. Probably get an easy $3000 for it. Won't sell it unless I find another good deal. I have a suburban, 2005 with 300'000 miles on it I would sell for $1500. Runs and drives great and toss my camper all season but at. 10 mpg it doesn't cut it on the trap line.


Wish I had more time to trap....

a friend of mine would say any vehicle sitting in a drive way without tags is for sale , go up tot he door and ask , then make and offer.

500 is mighty low for anything you can drive away

my son just bought a 1988 S10 for 300 from a friends dad it had sat 2 years in a field

it didn't come with a drivers door
2 of 4 tires bald
the key was stuck in the ignition in the on position
no head liner
rusted out outside of the bed but the inside looks great as it had a topper on it it's whole life
directional not working
had a switch under the grill to turn off the battery so that it wouldn't run the battery down with the key in the on position
bad battery
and it had about 6 gallons of bad gas in it
washer fluid didn't work

drain the gas and put new gas in did that and got it running before he bought it

45 for a junk yard door
20 for a new key cyclinder
10 for the tool to replace the key cyclinder and fix the directional
65 for a new battery
12 for new spark plugs
10 for tube to preheat the intake air

a bunch of work to clean and fix
tires will be about 80 each mounted and balanced he is

322 with what I could remember there were a few more incidentals like electrical contact cleaner and shop supplies ect

ah and registration is 160 +tax and fees cam out to 210

300 truck
322 parts
210 registration
= 832 for a truck he can drive back and forth to work



I think he got a deal at 300 most people would have probably wanted 500 for that


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

It’s hard to find a decent used running ATV for $500
