    Thanks Eddie,

    I appreciate the reply as well as link - however none of those listings on truckpaper exist - they're all pre-orders, many of which are deep into 22' without exact dates, and several into 23'.

    As for the 3 on social media - Steve and Zach don't have anything that meets above specs - do you have a link for Bill, I didn't find any listings for him.

    Thanks

    Appreciate the followup - they have nothing, and no due date for what's coming.

    Wow! Well, time for Plan B - if you have the financial resources, then buy a used truck with a good foundation ( frame, components and body are good) and plan to rebuild the power train from the radiator to the last axle.

    I already have other units on pre-order, the problem is they keep pushing back delivery dates with no confirmation. Buying used in this market is ridiculous with current pricing - and won't be suitable for my use which is to run teams with the mileage I mentioned in my earlier post. If you can tell me otherwise, as far as a quality team that wants to run non-stop being comfortable on a used/rebuilt unit - then send over the referral and I'll get on that! :)

    Otherwise the auction units available, will be going for less, however it's assumed there will be substantial work to be done / many units have damage that will take even more time to fix.
