New real trucks are 40-70k up here and I would have a hard time abuseing that.
I got this truck bran new when i was 19 paid it off in 8 months. With that kind of affordability why shouldnt we abuse them?
Well mine i don't necessarily abuse, i more baby it more than anything.
But the thing between these new and old trucks, it the quality pretty much.
Like my 88, most of it is metal, almost everything is, only plastic and rubber is like the hoses and stuff.
And a new truck i looked at, i couldn't believe how much plastic they use nowadays.
That's why i have my truck in the first place, i mean plastic is gonna break way before metal and Steele.
Even bolts are plastic somewhat, mine are all metal, the only thing i don't like is that they are those damn torque bolts, tough to get off.
