dont look too bad, its says theres a 3.5" exhaust and a 4 inch tip, it looks like a stock exhaust, and about the 3.5 inch downpipe, i doubt it is, its tough to fit a 3 in there. it also has rust starting in the typical ford places, i think you could do a little better then 9k on it

maybe I'm just picky but the OBS fords with that red interior just make me sick. Other than that looks to be a good truck.

go look for a '94-'95 dodge/cummins package. easier to mod and build big power, plus cheaper to lift. seems a little overpriced to me, go look at the dodges.

I dont like the red interior either but there isnt much in CT or around CT in my price range for a extended cab, maybe I will just have to stick with the single cab. He says he set the buy it now higher than his reserve. Also I thought that looked like the stock exhaust. Also Im looking at a 1995 dodge single cab with black/grey interior and looks alot better than this truck for only 7.5k obo. But I have to look at all my options so I can find the best truck for me.

Couple of things I noticed. As previously mentioned, it has a post turbo pyro. There are debats on if it should be pre or post turbo. Also,it still has a stock air filter box. Why did the owner do all those mods and never update the intake to match everything else? Also, it looks like the hood pad is soaked with oil or something. Maybe brake fluid? It right above the master cylinder. If I were looking at the truck, I'd want to know what happened there.
