    Basically you are trading down from a financial standpoint so if your trade in ($49k) is worth more than truck you plan to purchase ($43k) I believe you do not pay any tax. Not sure regarding state tax though if you have that. If it was the other way around you would pay taxes on the 6k difference if you were to trade up.

    Well, im going to go check out that 14 scab on Friday. Looks pristine from the pics but is there anything I should look out for in particular?

    I'd check the steering rack. Look for signs of oil on the bellows covering the inner tie rods.

    I'd also confirm the climate control system works- mainly that it goes from recirculate to outdoor air properly. That's an expensive fix when the recirc door fails, dash has to come out.

    Only other things I can think of as "common" issues are water leaks from the rear high mounted stoplight and/or the satellite antenna on the roof.

    There's just not many failure prone points on a 2014 6.2L F150.

    How and where do you check the recirc door? I think mine might be broken and how much is it to fix?

    I have a 2013 Taco 4x4 TXPro package 28K.A dealer offered me $19K for trade in value.I'm going to see what a private sale could get me.
