    uh...ya! Sounds like a good truck!

    Cash talks! You might walk up to him and say, "I've got 2200 cash" and see what he says...but even 2500. That's a good deal.

    sounds good to me too most of us spend that much just repairing the rust and putting a 14 bolt under the rear. make him a cash offer of 2000 and see what he says if not and you want it offer a little more

    What are you waiting for? Most of the bigger mods are already done and if what the seller says about the rebuilt eng and trans is true, that sounds like a steal!
