    Get oil analysis run on engine, tranny and rear end. Get a dyno with blow by test run. Then get a trusted mechanic to go over the truck and trailer top to bottom. Don't let your friendship enter into it at all. This is a business decision and you are looking for a tool for your business. Treat it as such.
    Doing this kind of business with a friend has a way of making them ex-friends. Just sayin'.
     
    Zen, AModelCat and Doealex Thank this.

    I agree with this advice!
    Keep friendship out of the equation. This is a business decision.
    And don't just settle for your friends offer. Check around and make sure you are really getting the best deal.

    Doesn’t mean they are all bad, but many were terrible. Similar to many other 2012-2013 emission motors.

    That single axle drive is going to present a serious issue with being overweight on an ongoing basis unless you’re exclusively hauling sedans. I speak from experience. I ran a single axle drive with a 4 car Sun Country years ago and I was constantly overweight on that single axle. Buy a tandem axle truck and eliminate that headache.
     
    Zen Thanks this.

    I don’t know what type of truck you are looking for. But in case you are looking for a stinger setup and want a reliable setup Virginia Auto Transport based out of Rhode Island and have terminal location all over east of the Mississippi will sale you one of the in stock trucks all you have to do is see one of there company trucks that you like call the head quarters asks them about the unit get all pertaining information on it they will give you a price and if everything works out you will have you a good truck but not at a new price and they will service it and detail it before you pick it up
