Is it worth it?

Well I've found a pretty good looking 95 F350 C.C. SRW long bed 4x4. I've been hunting a truck like this for a long time and either couldn't afford what they were asking or truck had been run into the ground. I'm gonna post the link to the truck and yall let me know your thoughts on it as far as price, miles, condition and all that. Any help in deciding if this looks like a good deal would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...

Miles are a little high, but CCLBs up here in any kind of decent shape go for $9000-10000. And I don't think you see CCLB 4x4 5-speeds often. Nice combo. Can't help but wonder about the black lower body and wheel well arches, though; covering up some old cancer? Those bumpers are probably worth a grand. The missing rear caps and tailgate panel, and the cracked dash, might mean it didn't get the best care. Pretty sweet deal overall, provided it wasn't rode hard and put up wet.

Does it smell like it was smoked in? That's another hard-to-find (one that hasn't been, that is) thing with these trucks, it seems.

I haven't went to look at it yet I just saw it on autotrader saturday. I was gonna ride over there and look at it this week. All the CCLB I have found within 120 miles of me in decent good shape have been 10 to 15k. I'm talking 97 models lol... I love the old body style but not that much. I was gonna check out the paint along the bottom and see if it was hiding anything. I thought the miles were a lil on the high side as well but if maintained I'm not to worried about it. Any tell tale signs to look for of abuse or negligence? Thanks

looks exactly like tbonemcneils truck, just needs a little lift and tires and grey interior lol, but exterior is exact same, miles arent to bad, but price does not seem to reflect the mileage, i got mine with more miles and less than half the price, (15k miles more) if you have the money and you think its looks good enough just get it, but its a bit high for me, make sure you get a car fax and what not, and also check the rear fender wells and underside for signs of rust, make sure it isnt leaking, and the steering isnt all caddywhompus lol, but looks like a nice truck overall

Looks a little beat up to be honest, if its just dents I guess it isnt bad, but there are lots of them, all over it. Also look at it close, people dont usually rhino line their trucks cuz it looks cool

Thanks for all the input y'all. I didn't see alot of the dents but I am looking at it on my phone. I'll be able to find out more when I can put my hands on it and I can handle dents I just it's not ate up with rust.
