Thinking on getting a new truck...never leased one. Any guidance?

Leasing company will dictate how much insurance coverage you must keep on the vehicle. If the state minimum is $10,000/$30,000 the leasing company can say you have to carry $100,000/$300,000
As far as vehicle leasing goes, all I've ever heard is that they are financially a bad idea and cost more over the long run. I don't know. When I briefly looked into it, I didn't even get as far as looking at the cost of it. I put around 30,000 per year on my vehicles, so a lease is not even close to being an option for me. I always buy a year or two old, letting the person who drove it off the lot brand new take the hit on the value. Pay 30-50% less than the vehicle was originally sold for, drive it 150,000 miles and start over. Still not a very financially wise way to do it, but a lease isn't an option. So I keep the cost down as much as I can and consider the monthly payment a luxury fee to be able to drive something decent every day.
Funny you mention a real transmission not needed a dipstick. My 98 Z24 with a 5 speed manual had a dipstick on it. It was much more convenient that the level check plug on my 02 Z24.
Part number 90. Upper right hand side. That was a great thing to have on the transmission.

If you don't mind keeping to 750 to 1000 miles a month they are good. I had many that way.
But and a big but here is they will pile drive you when you go over , and may rape you if there is damage deemed not normal wear and tear.
But since you like them toy jobs, it should be cheap enough.
If not I have a few late models I have found at reasonable prices while out doing work.

I'd rather have my sister work in a whorehouse than own another Taurus!
Been great so far. Couple of known issues that I have rectified or am keeping an eye on. Runs and rides great. Couldn't beat the price with the mileage. Little old ladies car from Florida. My new "ride or die" LMAO.
