I bought the truck and am getting it safetied today.

It looks to be in good mechanical shape, but there is a big rust spot under the passenger door that I didn't notice before so I'm looking into getting that fixed after the safety.

Otherwise given the mileage and age of the truck I would say it's in pretty decent shape and worth the 5k if it passes this safety.

Other than that it needs a new muffler, the rear bumper is a bit on the shitty side and there are some rust spots on the rear fenders which I will also look into having fixed.....but I couldn't find a single truck in my price range that DIDN'T have rust on the fenders.

For what its worth man, I would hold off. Look around see what options are out there. I looked at used trucks for 18 months before I bought one. I found my truck at a very good price, and I live in NJ where everything is insanely expensive. 250k, that truck is most likely in the middle of its death throws. Just my two cents... Good luck on finding a truck
