    do you know what kind of off roading damage?

    245k is alot of miles, especially if its been off roaded.

    i think if you can jew him down to 3k then id take it in a heart beat.

    just use the mileage and the damage as wiggle room

    Sounds a little bit pricey, for that many miles. If you want more of a true market price, you should check out Edmunds.com because they are A LOT BETTER at what the real price is. I have been in the automotive sales industry for over 8 years, and KBB is always WAY HIGH!!! I bet edmunds would put this car around $2000 private party.
    I would try to get him down below $4k.
    Have you done a compression test on the motor?
