This is a very solid truck, ay better than average, his truck was completely redone and painted about 5-6 years ago and done right, ts not perfect anymore, ut is still very nice and in great shape overall, very good looking truck with big potential, t has a few minor cosmetic blemishes which ill explain further below, ut overall a mechanically sound, ell maintained, weet respectable truck youll be proud to drive, urns heads and gets thumbs up everywhere i go.
Truck has fresh inspection, ood till 11/16 and mechanically sound, nd needs nothing, nd is ready to drive and enjoy, drive it almost daily, t is a very solid tight truck, nd handles and rides and drives smooth and tight, xcellent brakes, tops and starts beautiful, ependable and reliable. Just put all new tie rod ends on. Tires have plenty tread, nd will last a good while yet, his truck has a 2 1/2" lift on it, ll springs, o blocks, nd sits up a little higher than stock, nd has a nice stance, ot to high, ust right. Has brand new transmission in it with less than 5,000 miles on it since installed, hifts nice and snappy, as good dual exhaust that comes out in front of the rear wheels, ounds nice. This truck has the warn hubs installed, nd has the transfer case part time 4wd conversion kit installed, his makes a huge difference in wear and tear, nd tire wear, nd gas milage. Also a brand new heavy duty aluminum radiator was just put in not long ago. Engine runs beautiful, o issues, trong, nd powerful, o puffs of smoke at startup or while driving, uns great.
The only bad on this truck is a few minor cosmetic flaws, lazer emblem on driver side fell off and was lost, he three little white squares you see in the pics is just the 2 sided tape used to hold it on, he paint is fine underneath it just needs a new emblem. The previous owner let the drivers side fender get out of adjustment and the door rubbed some and chipped the paint some nothing terrible, ust cosmetic. On the passenger side of the hood it has a slight bend in it where the hinge is at from closing it, hey all do this, ts very common, ant really tell, ut its there, nd it caused a few small areas of the clear coat to peel some in that small area, ut its minor and not very noticable. And both outter, nd inner rocker panels have seen better days and will need replaced at some point if you want it perfect, hich is pretty easy, nd those parts are cheap, nd there is a few small surface rust areas on the bottom of the passenger side door, nd the one corner of the rear quarter panel on drivers side, ut all minor, nd nothing terrible, ll these areas are down low and hard to see, was going to replace the rockers, nd fix the few surface rust areas, nd have a nice black stripe painted along the bottom of the truck, nd have the clear coat blended in cause all the bad areas are down low, ause the rest of the paint job is still very nice, was going to do that and ask more money for it, ut i figured instead id just sell it as is, hat way whoever buys it can do it the way they want, hen they want, nd it will keep the price down so it will be more affordable initially. Nothing bad on this truck at all, asically its just the rocker panels, nd just the few areas these trucks are known for, therwise very solid.
Interior is pretty nice shape, ash is complete and working, auges work, eater and controls all work, ice seats with no rips..new rubber floor mat in front and rear was installed awhile back. The floors and structure of this truck is very solid, ay above average, nd frame is very solid, he frame and underneath, nd under the hood, nd radiator support were all stripped and painted black when redone, o stayed in great shape, nd still looks good. The owner before me owned this truck over 11 years, nd sold due to just not using it anymore, o its not been around the block or used much which is why its still a solid truck. The truck has a plate, nsurance, nd is inspected, drive it many times a week, o if you want to see it in person we can take it for a ride no problem, ery reliable, nd wouldnt be afraid to travel anywhere in it. This is a great straight truck as is, nd has high potential to become a top notch truck depending on how far you wanna go with it, ut is sweet as is. what you see is what you get. So as well as being in really good overall shape, his truck also has had a lot of new parts installed during and after it was redone, s well as some extras such as the 2 1/2" lift kit, nd transfer case conversion kit and warn hubs, o it has some extras as well. Also wanted to say, heres a lot of reflections in the pictures cause the paint is so glossy, hey are just reflections from the surroundings, ot imperfections in the paint. Any questions feel free to e-mail me...thank you.
