Shouldn't have heartburn over a guy making some money on a truck. If he bought it for $8000 and change and is trying to get $12k for it, does that mean it is an $8500 truck or a $12000 truck?? It was probably an $11000 truck when the guy bought it, so he already knew he was money ahead. Can't fault a guy for getting a good deal, and you can't expect a guy to just pass on the good deal. It may in fact be a $12000 truck now that he has upgraded it. I would say $12000 is the very high end for a daily driveable 2wd these days.

I'm not faulting him on making money on it. The market dictates that. I'm just trying to figure out what's a fair offer to purchase it. I'm thinking around 11 K? What do you think?

It never hurts to ask.
The worst thing that could happen is the seller says "No"

Pulling the trigger on this. Arranged pickup and am securing funds. Cant wait to get this truck, I've been after it for a year. I got him down to what I feel is fair and we can both sleep at night. Thanks everyone, esp PACrewCab for helping me through this process.
