I would want rust pictures of the bulkhead, rear crossmember. It does have the gutter kit so you can assume it has/had a badger.

Good price. A similar (albeit southern and rust free) 1997 in BRG sold for about that a while back on the website. Not sure why the high miles trucks take such a hit when it is rust that is the high cost on these things.

It looks pretty nice, and a great price, almost too good. I would have expected them to start the bidding at 22-23K. It has the gutter kit from Badger and looks like it was well maintained. I would make sure that you drive it or have a d90 member look it over. A lot of dealers/people conseal the bad areas. As long as the maintenance has been done correctly, the 145K on the clock will not be an issue.

Not that this helps, but I have definately seen that one before a couple months ago on ebay.
(same picts as before so those aren't very current)
I would ask for more pictures of underneath before bidding.

I have tried

I travel there every other week to the farm ( and to get to the farm I must drive through Sharpsville, PA ), send the seller a question to stop by and see it and no answer.

Again there is someone other than the owner representing the car.

I am planning to be at the farm this weekend ( Fri-Sat 11/7-8 ) so if anyone else has luck with an appointment let me know, I'll check it, take extra pics and even call you while in front of the 90.

I went to see this truck a few months ago when I was back home visiting my parents. The paint does not look as good as it does in those pictures. He was asking something like 23k for it then. That passenger side door is almost rusted through. There is some rust on the rear tailgate/tire carrier/brake light. The rear crossmember has some rust but isn't rusted through. The bulkhead didn't look bad though. The engine idled very high. For some reason, I remember the transmission was ok. Not a bad price, but not an amazing deal.
