The first picture is showing a bent bumper so check into if it was in an accident and see if the frame was bent.. and how many kms are on it? Go off how many kms it has

Lose the tails and the cap, throw in a tool box, and you got yourself a pretty kick *** stepside Ranger.

How many miles?

No probably the most solid lift you can get.

Definately check for corrosion. Check all fluid levels and condition (oil, trans, differential, brake, steering). Check the frame to see if it has been repaired or is bent. Check the brakes (pads, rotors, drums). Also check overal condition of the engine bay. Its not super high mileage, but its lifted so it might have been riden hard and put away wet (ie abused).

$5000 tops if everything is in good condition.

I'll sell you mine for 5K.

And the bumper isn't bent, it just needs to be adjusted.
