Buying Opinion

I found a Yellow d-90 with 103000 miles. The owner said that he had just replaced the transmission and the transfer case. It has almost no rust at all, even in the battery box, the only place I notice rust was under the driver's floormat. They want $19500 for it.
Is this a good/bad price?

Thanks in Advance

It sounds good to me. I paid 15k for my truck with 128k miles. If you take it to a rover dealer for an inspection, they will be ridiculously nitpicky about its faults but that can be used as an additional bargaining point. I would certainly try to get the price down to at least 17.5 if you want to screw the guy down, but if you want the truck, youre probably getting a fair deal at 19.

I would say if you know for sure the transmission and T-case are new then check out the engine, check the oil and makes sure it is not black or that it does not smell like gas or coolant. Pull a couple plugs and make sure they don't look that bad. Test drive it, make sure it doesn't overheat. The T-case goes for $1400, and the transmission goes for $1700 without the cost of installation, that would more then bring the price down to 15k. So at 19k you’re getting a pretty good deal.
