    Thats what this page is for for asking questions and share ideas with people that have a lot of knowledge, every single question one might have can also be found out there. I believe they might call this a discussion forum. And I know I know I can do that, but the other guy just came on to tell me that the idea of trading in a four wheeler in pristine condition is absurd in other words. I don’t know why you people even comment if you’re not going to help in anyway. Your guys are probably scared of your wives so you gotta come on here and release some anger.

    Thank you for that, I found great amusement in it. This place is definitely the internet, there are a lot of super knowledgeable people here that want to help anyone they can then there are the ones who will pretty much call you a stupid ####### for asking any question.
    homeskillet and elamigowapo Thank this.

    I don’t like to rant like that but I swear in every single post there’s always that person.

    Yeah, I hate it, too, when I ask a question on here and some knucklehead says, "Google is your friend"....... or something like that.

    I think the only person who could answer your question intelligently is a truck dealer, specifically one in your area. You might be near a truck dealer who would be glad to take your truck in trade; maybe not.

    There's two Harley dealers near me. One only takes used Harleys in trade, MAYBE the occasional maintained-showroom-new foreign bike.

    The other one will literally take ANYTHING with a motor in trade.
    As in lawn mowers, too.

    Of course, if you show up there to trade in your lawn mower for a brand new Low Rider, you're riding outta there on a $500 a month note for 120 months......but they DID get ya financed!!

    TL/DR: Call around. Good luck!

    Yes, you have every right to ask your question here, but your never going to get a correct answer. This is not a dealers’ forum, you’ll get 50% yes and 50% no and where is that going to get you........Ask the dealer that has the truck you want. Simple as that.........
    Humblepie, homeskillet and Cam Roberts Thank this.

    My company buys and sells used units. They will not if you owe money. Like @Ridgeline said, it is too much hassle if you owe.
    FlaSwampRat Thanks this.
