Fredslist: A Craigslist Guide For The Low Buck Wheeler

Posted in News on March 5, 2015

I spend way too much time perusing online classified ads and car lots for 4x4’s I don’t need. So rather than buy them all I’ll just start posting them here for you readers to go rescue. It’s like ebay or craigslist, but it’s not, as I have no connection to the vehicles being sold. It’s mostly just a way for me to justify wasting time searching for stuff to buy! I’ll call it Fredslist and you can expect some random vehicles for sale here, but all will be good for 4-wheeling, or at least a good start to build something for the dirt.

When you see a truck like this you may think contractor truck. What I see is a really cool platform for a camping, race chasing, desert tow rig exploring truck. This 6.7L Cummins powered Dodge 3/4-ton truck is for sale at Kia of Paso Robles. (Im not sure why you would trade in a big cool truck for a little Kia commuter, but someone probably did). Someone should rescue it from a life of construction sites and drywall hauling and take it on an adventure! Just add a big cooler, aggressive tires, some night piercing lights, and all the survival gear you need.

Got a cool rig for sale or do you know of a cool 4x4 on craigslist? Let us know what you think would make for a cool build and what you would do with it!
