Seems high for the year. I would offer 9,500 and see what they come back with. If they comeback with 11,000 go to 10,000. If they say sorry then say ok.

97 with 183,000 miles is kinda low mileage for that year truck. But what I am getting at is you can buy newer trucks with less mileage for around the same price or maybe a 1,000 more.


By the way Kelley Blue Book has it valued at 8,500. So me saying 9,500 is being friendly. But I was taking into consideration of the lift that is on the truck. As well as the mods that are visible in the pictures.

I agree, my 96 has 212000 on her. Try to get em down on the price. 9500.00 to 10,000.00 is about all I'd go. just my 2 cents

Its all really about how much you want it and what YOU want to spend on it. But IMO its to high i would say 9k to 10k at the most. But do what you feel is right..:thumb:

I gave 8,600 for mine there years ago. mine had 178,000 on it. so take that for what its worth. I know not much.

Its just matter how clean it is and how much you want it.

I agree the price is high for that many miles, but I know how hard it is to find just the truck you want. Try to talk him down and see what happens. I only gave $14K for mine 7 years ago, with 130K on the clock.
