    You don;t NEED a truck. Keep what you have.

    You can’t start a business with a $1000 truck. It will break down and you’d lose the business because you couldn’t get to the job

    Do you need capital? If you do, sell the car and lease a truck. If you don't, keep it

    Your business will probably fail. Never lease. Borrow a truck when needed.

    Lease a truck and write it down as a business expense. You could buy one too (doesn't have to be new) but it is more complicated dealing with capital depreciation than lease payments. If you use the truck only (or almost only) for work, you can write all the costs off.

    Really depends on your expected cash flow, what you should do. If you expect the business to start pretty slowly, better to buy a clunker and upgrade when you have a better cash flow situation. One consideration is that you really won't be able to afford the possible downtime from vehicle failure with a clunker. Reliability has a definite value.
