    My sister called me and said she found a truck she wants, already been lifted. But I cannot tell what kind of lift it is so maybe these pics will help. They want 8k for it with 165k Oh and she knows the dual exhaust is first to go haha..
    My dad will help her with the truck, she is a senior now, and I know he will help her with a new one once she graduates but she's so impatient. Just want some feedback, thanks

    It looks like a Trail Master.

    seems a bit $$$ for 165k miles. The sellers have to remember that they don't get the money back for the lift rims and tires when selling their vehicles used. You just never know, especially with a lifted truck, who installed the lift or how hard they were on this truck.

    Oh and I have a 90 model with duals, at first glance I hated them but didn't really give a damn about the truck so I left them, now its ok.

    The seller may be trying to recoup the cost of the lift.

    I agree with oakleyTRD that truck is kinda sketch. im not a big fan of spacer/ drop bracket lifts especially that big of one. they dont handle good at all and since she is a newer driver i would get a safer truck.

    its from a dealership, thats why the price is so high. he mustve gotten it form an auction from some dude that treated it like ass and got it taken away. i wouldnt buy a modded vehicle, without knowing its background. you dont know who did the work and how hard the truck was driven.



    heres a few more stock onea with less miles and a better price tags

    Thanks for the replies.. She asked me first so I
    figured I'd ask much more knowledgable people. Thanks magikbean for the other postings.
