Is This a Fair Deal?

http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.js...000&cardist=12

Does this look like a good deal? I know the red is ugly id paint it black fast but what do you guys think? can the 3.0 v6 push 35s? [without a hard strain]

I would go look at it and see what the rest of the truck looks like for rust. If its not bad then I'd go for it. The tail must have a bad leak letting water inside of or something.
I know my tail has some rust on the bottom of it. Not that bad though

Yea they have manual 4.0's. That truck seems to be a great deal, but there could be something wrong with it.

Looks nice except that tail... I'd just get a new one though... don't waste your time getting rid of the rust... if you're going to re-paint the truck may as well go to a j/y and get another gate
