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.
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:not in california, there is almost no manual trucks and even the old ones are expencive and the never are even more. the reason i want this truck is because it is the body style i want and ell everything i want
