We finally found it! Our new old truck has been purchased. After nearly a month of searching and test driving, and being disappointed in what was out there, we found the truck for us.
It is fourteen years old, but looks like it has slept in a garage most nights of it's life. There is just a little rust on the rocker panels. It has no dents, dings, or scratches. It's a half-ton, with an extended cab. The four wheel drive works. The radio works. The heat and air conditioning work. The power windows and power seats work. The cruise control works. It has no fluid leaks of any kind. It only has 160,000 miles on it. It's even my favorite color.
An additonal bonus of our new truck is that the price we paid is $2000 less than what we had saved up for a truck purchase. Which means a new couch is in my immediate future (ours having a bent frame and worn out fabric with tears in it after twelve years of being mauled by children).
Life is good.
