I dunno if there was any good reason, but this factor alone kept me from buying it. I let it go to the next buyer in line, I feel confident I made the right decision. I dont have a full service auto shop to work out of anymore, so I cant take on fab work anymore.
Thanks for the great info on this model of truck, I will keep an eye out for a low mileage unmolested example.
