To buy or not to buy...

hey guys its my first post and just wanted to get some opions on a truck im lookin to get.. here is his ad,

Hello everyone, I have a 2000 Ford Excursion Diesel limited 4x4. Here is a list of the major upgrades.

-12" suspension lift with custom ordered leaf packs from california
-dual aluminum rebuilable bilstien shocks on each of the front tires
-stainless RCD racing shock mounts for the front tires
-original detroit locker in the rear
-ford factory gears (keeps rpm at 1900 at 100kph)
-upgraded warn manual hubs
-stillen front brake kit with cross drilled rotors
-custom rhino lined safari rack with mirror-image ladders
-rhino lined roof
-heavy duty rear bumper off a US army jeep w/ pintle hook
-new transmission 15k ago with heavy duty torque converter and large pan
-custom drivelines and yokes/knuckles
-newer optima yellowtop batteries (2)
-new fuel filter and water seperator
-aluminum fuel filler cover
-wheels that match the paint color
-enough clearance for 44in tires if needed
-newer turbo and belt
-brand new power steering pump
-K&N air filter
-4inch straight exhaust out the side (loud hehehe)
-leather interior with third row seats
plus much much more...

This truck has never been off road and is bullet proof. It has 225000 highway miles (used for show... machine gun seller) but it runs like new and never smokes.... I welcome to take it to any dealer for inspection. I have invested over 40k in building this truck (the components cost more then my asking price!!!). Imagine the countless hours perfecting and engineering this truck to use as an everyday driver. I would not sell it, but i am going through a divorce so it must go asap.




hes was asking 21,000 but now is down to 19,000.. things it needs
- new tires
- ball joints
-drag arm
- new springs due to all 4 corners being cracked
- front drive shaft
- front brakes

What do you think??

i think a decent price for that rig would be around 12k if that.... think of it this way your gonna have to buy new springs(1500easily for that height) balljoints (1k+ -) tires, easily 1k+ depending on the size and brand you go with, brakes another 500ish, front driveshaft more than likely needs a custom driveshaft with a double CV joint 600+

if you take all this into account 12-13k is not that bad because youll have to put like 3k+ into it
