    www.telcotechs.net/chevy.htm she said she will take $2000.its a body lift,not a suspention lift like it says.she said the frame is in good condition.i just want some input.oh and its a little confusing but there 138k on the whole truck not on just the rebuild like it makes it seem.

    $2000 isn't the greatest deal in the world, but it's not too bad. Make sure you know what you're getting into with that rust on the passenger side.

    One other thing...

    Check out what they did with the fan and shroud. Did they make custom brackets to drop the shroud? Remove the bottom half of the shroud? Custom fab a new shroud? Remove shroud and fan and replace with electric?

    Just a thought....

    The rockers are completely hashed on both sides and it'll need at least one door. Count on floor and cab support repairs as well. If you like the rest of the truck pull up the carpet or whatever is on the floor and have a better look...then make your offer according to what you see.

    By the time rust is visible on the outside it has run rampant for quite a while...it's probably worse than it looks. All the rest is just nuts and bolts...

    whenever there is visible rust, there is alot more you can't see...i would not buy anything from the snowy northeast! Check under the carpet and I'm sure you'll see what I mean
