Something fishy on the rear end, it is rusty, but the brake cable looks new so the rear end has been changed out? the diff cover shows it has been serviced ( gasket sealer on bolts and oozing out the cover ) and looking at the side of the bed, you can see there was some repair, the top rail of the fence in front of the well has a "jump" in it where the body has been repaired but not perfectly... apparently this truck was hit in the side at one time or another dented the bed as well as prbly damaged the axle so the axle was probly poorly repaired or replaced with another damaged axle thinking it was good because some placed buy salvage yard parts since they get a steep discount, and whoever did it did it under the table or "hid" the damage ( possibly traded in to the un suspecting dealer ) there are lots of possible reasons.... but to me it looks like there was a cover up... if it was done at a reputable place there will be a car fax on it... if done at a small shop or DIY then it wouldnt show up on car fax.
Does the title show factory new or was there a previous purchaser? (Dates on title will show when transfered )
