would you buy this truck?

so i'm looking and i see one thats very affordable, just not pretty. i don't know if i care for a commercially used truck, but its a hell of a price for the mileage. i haven't seen it in person, but would you put this truck on your consideration list???

the price leaves room for repairs if need be. see if they have any maint. records on the truck or see if you can find the shop that takes care of that companys fleet of trucks to ask them about the truck.
they might be able to tell you what kind of shape the truck is in.

I dont know if that would be a good buy! that is allot of miles for a gasser, make sure you do a full look under the truck and all and test drive it on the highway to make sure it actually reaches full potential! Just my opinion GOOD LUCK

I bought my truck as a fleet vehicle from my dad's company, actually it was a line truck from the electric company. I bought it stuck in 4-low, purchased a new transfer case, painted it myself and put wheels on it and here I am today. I think it is a great truck and I thing I got it for a great buy. I purchased it for near what the truck you are looking at is priced for. Mine had 115000 miles when I bought it two years ago.

TS 6-position chip, wicked wheel, 6637 mod, Warn hubs, Sonnax valve and Tricumulator springs, straight pipe, ion wheels, High pressure Oil crossover, ATI tripple disk torque converter, John Wood valvebody.

Look on the door of the truck, see the ITS logo, that is a contractor for intermodal truck/rail terminals, also notice the shipping containers around the truck? I also work at one of these terminals, these vehicles are constantly running 24/7, not a lot of miles but rack up a LOT of hours. The contractor at my terminal replaces all yard pickup trucks every three years and they are pretty much used up when done.
