Here we have a decent-looking 17-year old Dodge 2x4 work package pickup with a 65,000 miles.

The truck features white paint, steel wheels, yellow headlights, a mismatched topper, and not much else. It can be yours for a steep $9,000 because he knows what he has.

My runner-up was a 2002 Astro cargo van with bro rims and Euro tail lights for a similar price...
