I think you can find a better deal, with lower miles. But it does sound like a nice truck and with out seeing it it would be hard to give ya a price. It sounds like it was well taken care of too, so maybe it is in the ballpark. Check out that list stump gave ya theres some good info there

I don't like the fact that it has a K&N Filter on it. I'd ask how long that thing has been on there. Maybe if it was a crew cab I would think 15 is about in the park though with all the extras

sounds like a nice truck... i bought my 99 with 132000 on it for 13,900 and that was a little high compared to some of the others i found, but it sounds as though it's worth taking a look at for sure
