  3. Get the VIN number and run a carfax report.And pray that those are the acurate miles.Ask if its been used as a tow vehicle,and if so how often.Try to get service records,
    and prof of any work done to the thing.Also check the grease fitings and see if they look like they been used!!
    Look at the transmision fluid,see if it smells burnt.Subs are heavy,OD tranies dont last long in them with out the proper service.Ask it the fluid has been changed lately.
    Just use good judgment is the best advice I can give.
    Good luck.


    IF IT AINT BIG IT AINT BAD!!!!!!
