Default 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 questions on offer

So I found a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 sport , 4 door, 70k miles, tint, HID's, flowmaster exhasut, and 20" factory chrome rims on it. Guy is asking $9800 OBO for it. I checked it out today and everything sounded great on it, took it for a drive felt great no issue. Only things are the dash says lights out because he didn't put a resisnator on for the HID's, and also in the back left read of bed a plow truck knick him with a decent scratch in it were it'll need to be painted (he did put paint on it so it didn't rust) Other wise there are a couple scratches on it, don't know if a claybar would take them out, but serious ones are from the plow.

Question, what would you guys offer for this truck?

Also are there any issues to look at/for with a 2002 Ram 1500?

My thoughts.

1. Check http://www.kbb.com for Trade in value and use either Fair or Good condition to determine its value.

2. Take it to and independent mechanic and have it checked out. If the seller says no or insists you take it to his/her tech. Walk away.

Also why check trade in value, wouldn't you check private seller?

i would call a local bank to see what they would loan on it,that will give
you a good idea what it is worth!
check on top of the dash good,i think the 02-05 models are bad for the dash cracking!
good luck, keep us posted on what you do!!!!

Any mechanical issue with the 2002? I kbbed it doing the trade in vaule on fair price at it $5,500, good at $6,175 and exellent at $6,600. I am just still confused on why I did the trade in value instead of the personal seller.

It has the 4.7l V8 engine. I'm going try to see if he can take any better pics of the scratches for me so I can post them up.
