Today we are talking about our top picks for trucks under $10,000. Whether you are getting your first truck, are on a budget, or just want a truck to play with.
1. 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
A very popular option in the truck world, the Chevy Silverado 1500 is a staple. If you are looking for this truck you will find pages and pages of people selling theirs. Just always be careful to find quality options while you are on the hunt for a truck under $10,000. You can find a 2009 or 2010 in lower-trim models under that $10,000 and if you are okay with higher miles you can even find a crew cab. Anything over 2011 under $10,000 will be hard to find but will be out there. This truck generally has minimal issues other than the notorious rust, especially if you are in an area with snow. In the example seen here, it has a McGaughy's 9-inch lift. McGaughys lifts are the most popular for this truck. It also has the TIS 544BM wheel and the Gladiator XCop MT tire on it as well.
