    what work could you posibly need after 296 miles? this seems way to strange to me imo. Also why does it look like the front headlight is fogged up?

    I'm not sure if this is the same ad I saw a few weeks ago but, I remember a truck almost identical to this one and they said that it was used for commercials. My guess it was probably beat to hell thus the super super low price.

    It's not foggy, it's aftermarket, just like the tails.

    Seller needs to explain what work it needs, otherwise the whole truck is way too unpredictable. Especially since it also says that it looks and runs great.

    Could it be a repo or crime scene car sitting in an impound lot for years?

    If it truely has that few miles on it, it's junk. As soon as you start driving it it will fall apart. Mechanical stuff does not like to sit.

    I bought a eight year old truck with 30K on it. My brother bought the same model truck five years old with 100K on it. Mine was the one with a bunch of fluid leaks and weird electrical problems.

    That truck is fishy as can be!!

    But it intriques me. Is that bed made of metal? And a 2006 vehicle with 296 miles on it has to have some sort of wacky story behind it.

    Somebody should call this dude and get some more info.

    Very sketchy. Why would it only have 296 miles and why would it need work. I'd just move on. Probably a scam of some sort.
