thats what im thinking. I test drove the truck and it does slightly pull to that side but that could just be a alignment issue or low tire pressure. The guy is asking $12,000 for it which is a hell of a deal for the truck

Is it salvaged? Damage doesn't look too bad but the first picture sucks.

x2! I would probably stay away from it. $12K for that being a salvage is not that good of a deal. Its not that expensive to fix the problems that it had.

I agree.

It doenst look like any damage to the frame, just body.

I wouldnt touch it for 12K though. If the seller would drop the price (significantly) then maybe.

That seems way too high even if it wasn't a salvage title... I bought my '07 Level II with 32,000 miles in early 2009 for $14000.
