It's all relitive... if the price is right, the cut wires and any other issues may be worth dealing with... it has reasonably low miles, does have a rebuilt trans (a known issue), and seems to be working ok. If the exhaust brake is after market, and non-operational, then the truck's original operating systems wouldn't know any difrence, and every thing should be fine. The hacked wires and the exhaust brake not working could be bargining power for you, meaning a lower price... you can always walk away if the deal doesn't feel right to you, before or after you make the 5 hour trip.
