Its a 99 ext cab stepside 4wd xlt Its loaded with all the options. Not sure what the color is called but its like a copper or burnt orange color and tan interior. Body is nice except the tailgate is rusted. Interior looks good but needs a good cleaning. It has 196000 mile but the guy bought it in 2002 with 70,000 and has taken care of it. The truck looks good as is except the tailgate. It runs but lost power and is missing...

if it's the colour i think it is, i almost bought one back in 2002 or 2003 2wd, 3.0L, extcab, tan cloth. it's a very nice colour and at the time my phone skin was that same orange. i've only seen two others that colour. one was a 99 4wd ext cab and the other was a mazda with a similar setup.

i also vote to keep it the same orange when you repair it.

Yeah I like the color too. I think all I'll need to paint will be the tailgate, The truck looked pretty good but it was dark out when I looked at it.

Looks pretty good, I almost bought a truck that colour, but it was 2WD and I wanted 4WD. Congrats on a nice purchase!
