I knew that I should have gone into a little more detail
with the odor problem.  We've tried THREE times to have
the truck professionally detailed and the smoke odor
removed (it wasn't that bad to start with, according to
my personal sniffer), but after up to 5 days with the
ozone generator each time, there is still an odor.  Everything
has been cleaned, etc., but the wife can still smell it.

         If the only reason you want to sell the truck is the smoke odor,
have you tried using an ozone generator to get rid of the smell?
          A friend of mine bought a truck from a neighbor that was a
smoker.  Both my friend and his wife are very sensitive to the smell of
smoking.  On the recommendation of a detail shop, he went to a local rental
place and rented an ozone generator.  Left it in the truck for a day and,
according to their sensitive noses, that zapped the odor completely.
