Former Texas 1997 F-150 extended cab truck rental Truck has over 240K on odometer and A/C compressor has been removed (don't really need it in paradise). But the cassette tape still works!. 6' bed good for surf boards! Although you will be tempted, please DO NOT take truck off road as lava rock has high silica (glass) content and sharp edges will damage sidewalls. My truck wants to retire to sunny Hawaii forever!
Please supply Ted with your flight reservation details including flight numbers and cell phone numbers so that Dennis, our caretaker, can meet you upon arrival at Hilo airport.

Ted was nice and flexible. He got back to me with any and all questions I had. The truck itself worked great and I was surprised how good the gas mileage was. It was a great simple ride to explore the beauty of big island. I had it for about 6 weeks.
Our trip was perfect! We were picked up at the airport and driven to our rental house, then driven back to the airport when we left. Ted's truck performed just great, no problems. We liked driving it; made us feel like locals. The transaction through Turo was hassle free...would definitely do this again!
