2000 Ranger with rebuilt title? Good Deal? First truck

Hi Ranger enthusiasts!

Im looking to get a truck for work, and have decided on a Ranger! I think I have decided on a black ranger XLT 4 door 4x2 with 108,000 miles on the odo (confirmed by car fax). It also has a camper shell which is something I would want for my line of work.

However the car has a rebuilt title. The pictures say it was a rear end injury and only the truck bed was replaced. He sent me these pictures

The current owner bought the truck to bring back to puerto rico but found out that the parts are very expensive there. Because he was planning on bringing it back he put a bunch of new parts in and on the truck:

He is a painter so he changed the color to a metallic black. Its actually kind of a cool paint job (in my opinion)

He is asking $4800.

Im planning to take it to a mechanic to get it checked out but I want to hear your opinions on the value/risk/ or if you see anything apparently sketchy.

Thank you all.

$4,800 for 2000 Ranger 2WD in Miami is at the very very top end of the price range, and with a rebuilt title.........I would pass.

Just looking on craigslist Miami a 2000 Ranger 2WD 4 door V6, very clean, with 100,000 should be about $3,500-$4,000 with clean title

I don't see any issues with the repair job he did, painters are very detail oriented.
Checking 4 wheel alignment would be first check for me.
If you want it then offer him $3,000 and see what he says, if he doesn't budge then walk away and know you did the right thing

And just as a heads up.........you will either love owning a black vehicle or you will hate it, lol.
Black vehicles only look good right after you wash them, never look good after you drive them.
And in the Miami sun........................
