End of the 2000? Seriously thinking.

I really want to know if this truck is a steal, I found it on craiglist. And I really wanted a 4x4 for when I go hunting in the mud for racoon/coyote/deer.

Its black with the black n red seats with silver gauges.

Brand New Brakes (front and back), battery, plugs, wires, and freshly tuned up.

Thats a really really really low price for that truck, especially with having under 100,000 miles.

Be cautious putting yourself in a financial burden buying a used truck. You never know what problems it may have that you will need to fix.

Just for sh*ts and giggles I wanted to see what was near me....2003 FX4LII, 41,000 miles, twin sticks for $14,000.

Man, if somehow I could convince my parents to let me do this I would be the happiest man around.

do you really have to mention it every post you make on this forum that you have a twin stick level 2? Its kind of getting old Ive seen you post that you have one like 3 times in the past day or so.

Cool but we dont care that much that you have to mention it every post that involves a 4x4 or fx4 mentioned.
