    I happen to be looking to switch my mid roff for a high roof, when I realized my truck was worth 120% more than I paid for it in January... 530,000 miles in a 2016 makes it in the range that people are paying nearly 100,000 for.

    Who are the people paying this price for a used truck?

    Idk. These truck prices are ridiculous. I can’t imagine the payment they’ll have with all the repairs on top of that.

    I didn't qualify for a lease with BYOB. At least that's what Ingrid said. ;)

    the very same people, that go to any CDL Mill, or work for some dimwitted boss, that wanna be rich quick.

    that's who buy those old used trucks.
