    Well I've been wanting a new truck for because my reg cab is just too small, really been wanting an access cab. We are looking at buying a salvaged one. My current truck now was salvaged 96 but we fixed it up and runs great. So I was wondering If i was going for the v6 should I stay away from high miles? Would it be to big of a risk to buy one with 180,000+ or even 140,000+ on the odometer?

    Also if anyone is familier with buying salvage 2nd gen, tips or things to look for would be greatly appreciated!
