Shouldn't have heartburn over a guy making some money on a truck. If he bought it for $8000 and change and is trying to get $12k for it, does that mean it is an $8500 truck or a $12000 truck?? It was probably an $11000 truck when the guy bought it, so he already knew he was money ahead. Can't fault a guy for getting a good deal, and you can't expect a guy to just pass on the good deal. It may in fact be a $12000 truck now that he has upgraded it. I would say $12000 is the very high end for a daily driveable 2wd these days.
