It boggles my mind why a dealer/seller wouldn't spend a few bucks and remove those and put on new fender guards and a new bumper and such. It must just show that the dealer does not touch these trucks at all, other than an over-detail then right out to the front line.
I guess I'm missing the boat. We go through trucks, make sure everything works, repair as needed, remove anything goofy, remove all the personal stuff (stickers, etc).... but then again we rarely make any money on car sales, so I guess I need to learn a lesson here.

Looks like they didn't even bother to replace the missing headrests on the blue 94 either. I guess it might have dug too much into the 19k profit they were looking to make. :]

Sure was, Keith.It was the one I mentioned to you guys. I was the underbidder. Nice vehicle except for the hideous seat covers and lack of headrests.

Maybe after four accidents, the guy with the BRG Truck decided he needed the yellow strobe lights............:]
