Sounds like a nice truck thats been taken care of. I'd aim for the $8,000 price range though. Sounds like he's trying to get his money back for all the things he just did to it.

Tell him to tint the windows and find that missing passenger side hub cap. Haha.

You looking to make it a play truck?

he had it rebuilt because there was a seal that was leaking and he is friends with a guy who owns a transmission shop so he had it rebuilt with the heavier torque converter. when i go and look at it i will have him show me the reciept
