Are those original miles? Or has it turned over?

I am not sure...I called the guy and he gave me the normal BS about it..."oh its a real beauty, bla bla bla," but it only has a 5 digit odometer...so I asked if it had turned over and he said, looks like it hasn't, but not sure.

its tough to get info out of the dealers.

If its 168k its a clean 168K

If you could talk them down a little that would make a nice truck, assuming you took the graffitti off the sides!

Looks like a decent buy either way.

If it's rolled over, it's been taken good care of.

It does look clean...and would look a lot better with that "grafritti" off of the sides.

If you I become a premium member I can get the VIN # and check the report on it right? I have been meaning to become one anyways, just wondering if that was an option.

I personally wouldn't buy anything from a used car dealer. Notice how everything looks really "clean" but the valve covers were rusted? Gotta be more on that 19 year old truck thats rusted. You could quickly be into it for a lot of $$$$ in repairs.

It's just me,
but I'd pass.

Looks very nice, I assume its a southern truck. If you are serious about buying it I do recommend paying for a carfax report. Should be able to find more on the mileage issue with carfax, plus where it has been, any insurance claims on it etc.
