No way could this be real with the mileage being that low.

I saw that a few days ago. I don't think it's a scam, just a really fair price! Although, I'd ask a lot of questions...ie clear title, rust???

The fourth pic looks like the tires lean in...hhhmmm. It would be nice to see pictures of the driver side, as well as the interior and undercarriage. Curious why all 4 pics focus on just the passenger side...

Remember, low miles doesn't always mean less mechanical hassles...

I have spoken with the dealer and asked him for some additional pics.

He sent me these. Looks a little beat to me.

I got some pics, too. Rust might be an issue in the bulkhead. Frame pics were unclear, tough to tell whats going on there. And those might have been 23k hard/neglected miles... I wonder if any fluids have ever been changed on this thing.

If it hasn't been waxoyled then the frame is toast. So much salt here in the city it's not even funny.

According to the Carfax, it grew up in New York. Conditions are pretty much the same though.

I started another post on this same truck (sorry didn't know) anyway, if you look at the odomoter picture, the numbers have the "new font" that ECR points out is clearly a changed odomoter. I am of the opinion that this is fake mileage.

This D-90 was on Ebay back a few months ago. If you look closely at the pictures, the gas tank is hanging down on the rear sway bar. The the gas tank skid plate rusted completely through. The chassis has also been painted to cover up the rust. Buyer beware.

Will

Look at pics below to see the swaybar sagging from the weight of the gas tank (2nd pic is from their ebay ad). It is a rust bucket.
