    Default Might need help... truck/trailer/roadtrip

    Iím looking at buying a truck just outside of the Chicago area. It is a fairly rare truck with options that I want and the price is more than right. However, it cannot be driven right now due to a problem with a brake caliper.

    I have considered having it shipped, but am extremely nervous about buying a 20 year old truck, sight unseen.

    Itís 300 miles each way. I would be willing to pay for gas, food and a reasonable per mile charge for anybody who can help out?

    Note: this is pending a few things including a CarFax, and few other things from the seller.

    I would be looking to do this on a Thursday (leave 9am) or a Fri/Sat/Sun (leave earlier if possible).

    PM me if you can help.

    Thanks

    Note: itís a Landcruiser, so need a trailer that can handle a 7000lb truck

    Mike, I don't know if this might help or not.

    My good friend Jack Wagner owns & runs a
    professional vehicle transportation company
    and its based out of Ann Arbor.

    He might be an option for you.

    Cool

    ^^^ LOL, this Jack is a really nice guy who is a senior engineer
    who has also ran several successful businesses. He developed
    this one to employ some of his family, so this is indeed a true
    "family business".

    If only in Chicago, go take a look at it first before buying. I've heard/seen many who buy unseen and find out when they do see its a big pile....

    This is a possibility. Go check it out in person, make the deal if it checks out, then arrange shipping. LOL, never crossed my mind.

    Buy a caliper and drive it home
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    I think it has driveline issues and they don't want you driving it until it's paid and long gone. Hope not!
