It has the TBI350 and 700r4 etc etc. It has about 125000 miles and still runs great and shifts good. converted to manual hubs. Transfer case drop and cv joints with longer shaft. Very little surface rust. pwr everything and good interior. starts right up etc. He wants 2800 obo. How much would you offer?

    That price sounds like a steal. I paid $6,800.00 for my "89" and it was very clean but all stock when I got it.

    2800 is a good deal, but if he's offering it OBO and not firm, why not have 2500 hundred in cash and go with a buddy thats holding the other three. then you can " borrow" the extra cash if you have to. i'd be willing to bet that he'd take the 2500. besides, there might be some hidden problems that come up shortly after the purchase,(there always are) then you'll feel better that you got a reduced price.

    That sounds like my truck when I bought it. About 125K miles, 8" lift, 35" MT, 1988 silverado package. Rock solid! He was asking $5,000. I showed up at his house with 3K cash. He kept scratching his head. I told him the most I could do was go to the ATM and drain my bank account for 300 more dollars. I drove home with it!!! BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT!!!!!!

    just read your post. That is pretty much what I did..hehe, I actually had the entire 5K my bank gave me, but acted like I only had 3. I was going to do the "borrow some money from the friend thing" but I figured that it would be hard to believe that my friend just happened to have 300 cash on him. I didn't want to seem like a total cheater. hehe, so I did the ATM maximum withdrawal thing. BUt I agree. Pull out your little cash envelope that the bank gives you, and count out 2500 cash. Keep the rest stashed somewhere. It is a steal at 2800, but shoot, for 2500, that leaves you with 300 to start re-gearing and stuff!!!! You already got the lift and tires. Man, if you don't buy it I will!!!!
