Trying to sell a truck

Hey guys,

Long time creeper, first time poster.

I am just finally getting into cars now (I'm 21). My mother just gave me her truck in which she smoked in for 15+ years. I have cleaned the bad boy out, and she won't let me keep it (first car is not allowed to be standard =/) so I have to sell it. I want to try and get rid of the smoke smell to up the value, do you guys have any suggestions? I have heard good things about activated charcoal and airbombs but I am not sure where to get them. Even if I were to ship it to a letter carrier and pick it up it is still a ridiculous price to pay for something that I can't trust when there are mixed reviews.

So I guess in short, do any of you guys know which product I should go after, and if there is a cheaper alternative than shipping it?

Several friends who use this forum suggested I come here for advice. Thanks a lot for all your help guys =)

Use the power of steam!! Steam cleaning worked wonders in my corolla years ago.

Off topic, but you're 21. Why is your mother not letting you get a standard car?

She wants me to teach my brother when he gets his license. There is not much I can do about it. How much does steam cleaning set you back?
