    $11.3k, found amazing deal and after 3000 miles haven't had any issues. Some minor body scratches, but nothing too big since I was planning on replacing them anyways with aftermarket parts.

    I'm sick. I can't believe you found a 2nd gen for that price. How many miles?

    150k miles, had everything checked by a mechanic and autobody shop and every major component was good/great condition. I wasn't really concerned with the mileage since I was going to do some serious mods on her anyways and take her offroad. There were small dents in the tailgate, and the right front fender had a huge scratch in it, but since I'm plannin on lifting and installing 33'+s on her for trail runs, getting new fenders and modding them at some point wasn't an issue. No frame or underbody rust, engine compartment needed some minor cleaning, but nothing serious from two sources that checked. The tires were new but the wheels were beat up, but since I'm lifting and getting new wheel/tire sets in the future, it wasn't a concern of mine. Truck runs amazing and I'm glad I managed to get her. I've had her for a month now and put over 4000mi on her and she sounds, looks, and runs amazing.

    Here's her after putting on doing BHLM and homertaco's custom Satoshi grill. I should've cleaned the lenses before I did the mod, but now I have to wait a few to fully cure the butyl while the lights are bolted in and don't want to risk washing or cleanin them until after a day or two. :D

    That was a no brainer. I would've jumped on that myself. Good for you. Nice truck and I'll be looking foward to future mods.
