Welcome to RF Dan.

78k isnt too bad for a 94.

I giggled a little bit when you put the frowney face when you said that the truck is purple.

Yeah i was kinda iffy on buying it because of the color, but with only 75k miles (idk why i put 78k miles, i checked today and its just over 75k) and it only cost me $2500 so I'll deal with the color until i can afford to paint it. Overall it's a great truck. No major problems at all.

Yes I'm sure it's only 75k. I bought if from my neighbor who bought it new. He hardly ever drove it because it was always his second vehicle, and its in too good of shape to have 175K miles.

Pics in about an hour. Almost off work.

I like how it is a dark purple. Anything brighter and I would be a little iffy about it as well.
