Yes, i have thought about a diesel, you get better mpg but thats its, if something breaks, you are are in much deeper in the buffer than a gasser.

I think you should see if you can get the red one for $6000-$6500. Then, if you sell the cap, you're laughing.

No worries. That's what we're here for. Buying a used vehicle can be daunting. And there's an element of risk that no amount of research will eliminate. So at the end of the day, any choice you make will be fine. If something comes up post purchase, you'll deal w it, and you'll still have an awesome truck. I personally, hope you get the red one for the money you want to spend. It's my favorite so far.

Well, it's a rare vehicle, that's for sure. But only because of the mileage. There's less risk w this truck because of it. But it's your dime. When ppl say they won't go any lower, that's bs. It happens all the time. This is why negotiations are better in person. If you're in front of him waving a fistful of sweaty money, he's more likely to move into your price range. And if he doesn't, you can still walk away. He thinks it's worth $7200. I do too. But I wouldn't give him more than $6800 for it. And if he won't take that, I would go back to shopping for a truck on the internet. (Not a bad way to spend your spare time..)

if you make the trip just make sure you dont get too excited in front of him and look over the truck very closely and try to point out anything you can that could bring down price.. talk about the other trucks you are looking at and how some might be a better buy for you then at the end show him the cash you have to offer and tell him he can take it or leave it lol thats what i would do.

now ford... the problem is circled in blue right on the front of it... i too think you need a good slap lol
