I mean, its priced right but it's no key buy. It will definatly need maintenance to keep it going. Because it's got high miles everything is more than likely pretty worn. These are great trucks. They can get higher miles if maintained. If you like to tinker and it fits your purpose and budget go for it. You can turn these trucks in to anything you want with time and money. Let us know if you pull the trigger

The only thing I have a problem with is that you didn't put the miles on it. You know how you drive and you know where it's been.

Hire a mechanic to inspect it from head to toe so he can hook it up to his OBD scanner to see any trouble codes, and their physical inspection of the chassis can give you an idea of what may need attention, if at all.

You could save a c-note in fees and do it yourself, but have a checklist.

This guy's YouTube video has a lot of good info.

Best of luck!
