History
Bought used with 13,000 miles in 2001 from a small dealer in the mountains of NC. I had looked all over the East Coast for a truck with a manual tranny and kept coming up short.

I was taking helicopter flying lessons at the time so I took the opportunity to put in some hours and fly out to the dealer to check the truck out prior to buying it.

When I arrived I circled the dealership a couple times then headed over to the airfield across the street. By the time I landed and secured the copter, the salesman was pulling into the parking area.

After the test drive, I was sold. The truck was far more than I expected at a decent price as well. I drove back with a friend the next week and completed the deal.

Since then, she's been a constant companion over 150,000 additional miles.
