Of course it's up to you, but the way I would look at it is like this: If you can afford it now, you found the truck you really want, and you are happy with the price and the rest of the deal, I'd take it now, as in 3 months the truck may be gone or may cost more, etc.... At the same time, it may be even a better deal in 3 months, but you never know. If it were me, I'd buy it if I was happy with the deal. If I wasn't too thrilled about it, or wasn't sure I'd sit on it. As for the truck taking a beating during the winter, I wouldn't be too concerned with that, one winter won't make a difference really over it's whole life IMO, I'd just try to practice some good maintenance to help prevent corrosion, like washing the underneath of the truck and the wheel wells off with a hose after driving through salt/snow, or at least like every weekend or something like that. We did this on our s10 and it spent a lot of time in the snow, and it still runs damn near perfect and has over 220,000 miles on it, and just recently started showing surface rust on the frame where the protective coatings have worn off(15 years later). The body has no rust. Truck was sold recently to a friend so probably has even more miles like 230,000. Good luck whatever you do!
