“Confessions” Of A
Here is the truck and SUV book you've been waiting
for. Well almost, it's close to print. But it's much more than a book, it's a kit, with
trailering guides and truck checklists to cover what's important to you for
the right truck and what you use it for. You must experience "The Joy of
Trucks." Get the right guidance on choosing the
right truck and matching it to your trailer.
Why Americans Love their Trucks and SUV's.
Read about other Americans obsession with
their trucks. We spend more time in our vehicles and more time customizing
our rides today. They become an extension of our personalities.
Buy the Right Book, Before
You Buy the Wrong Truck, Again!
Before you spend the $40 to $50,000 on that
new truck, buy my book/kit, save money, time and have that good feeling you
get from making an informed decision. Especially when your truck pulls a
trailer, hauls a camper & safely transports your family. As in sales, their job is
to sell you the least truck for the most money. It's a gross profit matching
formula, not the right truck for the right job formula.
Do not trust your
decision to smiling handshaking strangers. Do your research first. That's why I
wrote the book, good truck information is hard to find.
I've owed close to 20 trucks so far, yes they are addicting. Even Sam Walton had his
favorite truck to haul "Roy" around and go hunting with. Millionaires drive
trucks, preachers, beauty queens and yes even politicians drive trucks.
Trucks outsell cars, but why and how do we choose the right one for
the way we use them?
As a bonus
you'll receive free trailer & camper guides & access to the Insider Club
special reports .
Save a thousand or two on your next truck or
save a thousand or two by not having to
trade your wrong truck in again this
Blue book, yellow book, black book, book value is another overused term that is meant to confuse
you, kind of like the Latin they use for lease terms. What the heck
is "cost of money factor" or "guaranteed future value" and my favorite
"we're already losing money on this deal but if
you'll buy now..."
But that's only part of the problem. How do you know
which truck you really need, and is a light duty 3/4 ton truck really a
heavy duty 1/2 ton or just weighs less than a heavy duty 3/4 ton? Why are
trucks so complicated? Well salespeople
have a sales license don't they? Didn't they have to pass a test? Ask a
salesperson or the "Turn Over" manager that comes in for
the close, what the GCWR is for the truck you are dealing on & if it needs a WD hitch
for the GAWR & if you'll be over the 26,000#' GVWR & need a CDL to be
legal. But say is slowly.
Then ask them what a "full floating axle" is and if
the torque converter will lock up in 2nd gear and hold you coming down a
long hill. Maybe a third manager can come in and explain things, they took a
test right? But there are great dealerships and salespeople out there
too. Learn how to find and build a relationship with the good ones.
