I wouldn't get an extended cab but that's just me. As far as the truck, really it just depends. There are so many variables there is no way we can pass judgement on it. One thing to think about though. On a truck that already has mods done you don't know who installed them and what kind of job they did. That may present problems in the future...

I think you should look under the hood and inspect the truck... There is a thread around here on what to look for.

yeah that is what i was worried about... I want a truck that is stock but im sure that is hard to come by now a days. I just want it stock so i can do the mods my self...

I will probably pass and wait to see what else comes along the road... And I would definitely prefer a four door.

I would pass on it. Those switches look like somethin cheap from autozone. The wireing probably looks like a rats nest under that dash... Who knows what they conected where. Its a early 99 so keep that in mind as well. Also I can guarantee it was a kid owned vehicle which you also should keep in mind. The previous owner probably drove it really hard. If ou inspect it go look under the truck. Check for signs of mud on top of the trans or xcase. just some things to keep in mind.
