2004 Disco G4 on eBay... Overpriced??

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Land-...0da4ec&vxp=mtr

Is this really what they go for?? I had a friend of mine buy one 5 years ago with 1/2 the miles and in better shape for the same price...

That's high.

I love the failing headliner and general age issues and he's asking top dollar. No way.

PLUS - the best part: "I wasn't planning to sell it 3 weeks ago when I ordered the lift... Truck has no stories." ---- yeah maybe you decided to sell it when you saw it drinking coolant? Note the coolant res is quite low. Fail.

I have bought around 14-16 cars and trucks sight unseen far away.... And god only knows how many I've owned now (over 100 easy) You really learn what to look for in pics and video.

I get paid to buy/sell vehicles for other people so I have a keen eye. If something shows up here not right I have to warranty it.

It's rust free, that's the only good thing I'll say about it.

Not to sure about the brake reservoir either. Front inner fender damaged http://i.ebayimg.com/00/$T2eC16hHJGsFFMvUcmHqBSE+sdLclw~~_4.JPG

Several gallons of Armor-all gave their lives in the cleaning of this truck.

I don't know about the brakes, only their unreliability.

Flares and other plastics are worn/sun bleached (lots of armor all on them to try and hide)
Rear ladder is rusty
Some sort of damage to the drivers rear lower tail light
Spare is original (so almost 10 years old - it's due to be replaced for sure) He states it's a "matching spare" - it's not.
Brake pedal has some wear
Ebrake boot is worn
Carpets are grubby
Drivers seat bottom outer bolster is dead and torn
Door seal Lower edge looks tired
Headliner sagging and completely falling off near pass windscreen side -BAD
No info tag for t-case shifter
Missing cig-lighter dohickie
Looks like dog hair in it - for those allergic could be an issue.
Bottom rear inner corner of drivers and passenger seat has something broken/torn
Back seat looks very dirty in the cracks/seams. Dog car.
Scuffs on drivers side rear door inner panel
Has oil or coolant leak front. Coating splash panel and front diff
Destroyed inner fender plastic pass side front
VERY low coolant!

Decent truck, better than most with 85K miles - but NOT a gem at all. Certainly not worth that price.

In addition this truck lives right by the ocean and the only beach in California you can legally drive on so chances are it has been dunked in salt water. You also get a constant salt spray in the air out there.
