    sounds like a descent deal....are u getting it from the dealer? and if so, u might wanna go ahead and have them do the rear TSB on it if u plan on actually hauling anything, if it isnt already done yet.

    I will check the springs.

    It is from a person, not a dealership.

    Doesn't it have too many mikes for the TSB?

    Plus it looks to be lifted just a bit, perhaps a body lift......................

    true...didnt pay attention to the mileage....and it doesnt look like a body lift b/c u cant see a lot of frame. looks like maybe a 2.5-3" suspension lift w/ some sort of lift in the back...either a block or an AAL

    Ok, it looks good but has a few small probs.........

    Front bumper a bit loose, kind of rattles when grabbed.
    broken off bolt in right tailgate bracket.
    small paint chip in right rear door.

    But I think Im gonna go for it,

    Picking it up Tuesday @ 3pm.

    P.S. the TSB on the spring was never done.

    it does have a 1.5/2 inch lift.
