I've been monitoring Autotrader daily for a month and found this one, only an hour after she was listed. Dealer trade from the original owner.
(80yo fisherman from southern OH) The guy only drove for fishing and snow days.
I paid less than a dollar a mile.
Some surface rust on the rear axle UCA, LCA, and frame but the recall spray was done. Ball joint recall was done also. All body panels have zero rust or funk. Interior is flawless. the old guy must have washed it a lot in the winter. I will do some rust removal (Metal Rescue) on the leaf spring mount welds and spray paint. Peace of mind I guess
I drove it home 950+ miles with no problems. Best mpg was 21.5 due to the new Michelins I bought up there. No way I was going trust the original 11 yo BFG's @ 75mph on the freeways. Got the M/S Tahoe style tires because I will never leave the asphalt... Paid $14460 + FL tax.... Nice truck
Changed all the fluids, diffs, TC, Brake, PS, ATF, Coolant, and oil.
