    It looks like a nice truck, but for that cheap there has to besomething wrong with it. At least I've never seen one with that much stuff on it for 3K. It probably has 10 bolt axles, which are right at their max with 35" before things usually start breaking. Does it say how many miles are on it?

    Carlos,

    If it is for real, BORROW the money. I can easily see $3,000.00 worth of extras. Seriously, for that kind of momey there is something very wrong.

    It looks good for 3k, but the rims are too wide for a 12.50 tire. Shouldn't go anymore than a 10 inch width.

    With that lift, the guy probably can't keep driveshafts under it, and is now trying to unload. There are ways to fix that if it is what you want.

    It could be 6" suspension lift and 3" body, in which case the drivetrain could be kept in tact with longer driveshafts.
    Carlos, is it really for sale or are you teasing us?[​IMG]
    Looks damn great to me.

    It's not what you buy, it's what you build!

    The second one looks a little more legit. I'd just get a stock one or maybe one with a smaller lift and 33s, theres probably a smaller chance its been abused too bad.
