This will probably end up as Taylor's daily driver at JMU if she wants it.
Good luck with the truck-sounds like you have a good way ahead to salvage the useful parts, I def feel for Jason b/c literally I was staring at the ebay pics of it trying to justify why I needed a RRC when he got it. The PO clearly did a number on window dressing it to appear decent.
On the upside you got some good bits out of the deal. Congrats on the purchase, and perhaps even more the negotiation of NoVA traffic successfully. It certainly drives life around here.
