Default I need a mail truck.

Looking for a used mail truck. It can have bad motor.

I have some ideas for a Big Stickers and Signs service vehicle.

These things are hard to find.

you might be able to find a RHD jeep that was used for mail.

Yep have recently changed my mine. Are you kidding me they want this much for vehicles that are poorly put together by parts you can buy from trailer supply places.

I thought it would be something different because you don't see them customized. Well you don't see them because it's a bad decision to buy one.

Exactly. By the time they are for sale, they are run down and they charge a premium for them. So not only do you have to pay more up front, but you have to then restore it.

It's a God knows how many mile 1983 S-10 at the end of the day, maintained by independent shops that bid the lowest... And then they want $7,000 fucking dollars. I can buy a 2010 PPV Tahoe at auction for that

As a reminder, the RFP to replace mail trucks is out there being bid on, we are a few years from the current fleet being decommissioned, at which point values will tank as they become readily available.

Gen2 trucks are Late 90's Ford ranger based, they have different headlights/grill/wheels.

Gen 1 (S10 based) 83-94



Gen 2 (Ranger based) 94+

Yeah I'm hoping they're like $800 when that happens. I'd buy one for that price.

I bet you could get a mower in the back of one of these. Perfect little flipper van.
