id trade, but you didnt say what motor the '88 has. hopefully its got some lower gearing to go with the big tires. nice clean trucks though, both of them. straight, clean gen1 trucks are getting harder to come by. my gen 3 is showing its age. ( but i am in the "rust belt")

The tires on the other truck are looking a lil low, but that's about it. You'd get the better end of the deal.

Looks like a decent trade, but pictures don't tewll the whole story. What knd of mechanical condition is his in? How well does he maintain it? Does he dog on it constantly, or just when he needs to? if you feel comfortable about that part of it, Looks like a nice trade to me. You both will be getting pretty nice trucks.

If this is for a daily driver.. keep what you have. Cheaper to run and you know the history of it.

It's in really good shape though. It's hard to pass that up..

What's gonna be your DD? Your 07 or the 88?
