They are asking $18k which seems to be a good price from what I have been seeing. The truck is an automatic 4x4, is there anything I should look for on it? If I do but it what kinda life expectancy can I expect from it?
That aught to help with the things to look for, I know theres a thread around here somewhere but I listen better than I read.
18k seems like a high price, but thats just me. Unless that thing is EMMACULATE, I wouldnt say any more than 12k, but anywhere from 10-14k sounds right.
And as far as life expectancy, these things will run a LONG, LONG time... if you take care of them. The 7.3 is right there with the 5.9 cummins when treated right.
oh wait.... you arnt brand new... lol welcome anyway
