I would say i depends on the condition. Hard to tell from the pictures. If there is no rust, body is fairly straight, there is no blow by or major leaks, drive train looks tight, trans work is verifiable and the warranty transfers to new owner, how much wear on the tires, what kind of lift, and what mods have been done.

I think its a nice looking truck, mileage is ok depending on condition like i said. Big thing is the blow by, if there isnt any then i would say go for it. I would probably offer him like $6k and see what he says. I wouldn't go over $7500 though. Like i said it all depends on the condition.

As a side note, when i sell my truck i will be asking in the $8k range...

Borderline, but not too much for a 1-ton CCLB with no rust. One like this with fewer miles would fetch ten large almost anywhere in the rust belt. "New trans" implies it's an automatic; it'd be a better deal with a 5-speed.

See link above, i dont think the price is that far off depending on the condition which is hard to guage with those 4 pictures.

I've noticed with cclb, and 5spd you pretty much have to pay whatever the owner wants if you want it for certain.

Looks like the driver front fender is smashed in, and the front of the hood doesn't look right. Rear fuel door looks like its pushed in. And the rear bumper doesn't look right either. Also looks like the front tires have some camber to em, which would mean it needs balljoints. I'd say thats a $6500 truck at best.
