Thoughts on a truck

Higher mileage than I would want but looks nice. Anyone see anything terribly wrong with it?

looking at this truck too. Wonder what the "reasonable" reserve price is.

Was in Hawaii from 2000 until April 13 2011, no Colorado records even though that is where it says it is.

The paint job on those hinges is hideous. Looks like someone used a can of Rustoleum on them. Love how it says "Low Miles" when it has over 100K. The interior looks a bit sun bleached and I would say it's hard to really tell the condition of a white truck unless you see it in person. White paint is good at hiding issue since there is very little reflection.

I hear ya' Disco... But, 100k is low mileage for a 14 year old vehicle. The industry standard is I believe 12,000 miles per year, some say 15,000.

Also, the hinges are steel (not aluminum) and the one's on a white D90 are white and they suck even more. Trust me, I know. There's not much you can do about it aside from buying a set of alloy one's for like four hundred or something. Some company out there makes them... I can't remember off the top of my head.

Thanks for the feedback. I took a closer look at the pictures. I need to look closer in the future.
