Looks sharp. I'd run a carfax and an oasis report. I think with the lift I'd want to get a good eyeball on it just to make sure it wasn't hacked together.

I always have a problem with buying a truck someone else mollested.


Just my .02

I'd begin to question why the truck was completely repainted. When I see a truck advertized as recently painted that's less than 10yrs old I begin to question why was it repainted. And seeing that he changed a burgandy truck from his avitar to the white truck in the picture I'd want to do a very close inspection of how well the color change was done.

And my personal opinion of carfax from what it shows vs what I know has happened to my vehicles is that it's not as reliable as they would like you to believe. I had a '90 ranger. Purchased knowing it had had rearended another vehicle. Carfax shows that it was hit in the rear end. Truck was later flipped on it's side- Not on carfax at all. Truck was clipped in right rear corner. Carfax shows left front accident. Oh and it shows odometer fraud alert since it only has an 8 digit odometer that turned over.

the 18,500$ also includes wheels and tires and a Superchip programmer, he told me that with the programmer it makes 335hp and over 500 foot pounds LOL he said he would get the VIN here later when he goes out to his parents

The truck in his avatar is an extended cab 03 model.
