Asking price is high IMO

Something doesn't seem to be squared away with the suspension either.
Why is the front higher than the rear? The passenger side also appears to be higher than the driver's side.

Sounds like a solid truck, but a lot of money for a 2wd needing paint and body.

Front is even side to side Front suspension is all new. It has a add a leaf in the rear but the rear dose sit a little lower easy t change if you don’t like it

It is a high asking price but I bet there is that much $$ into it, in the condition it is in now.

I have more than that in my crew cab w/o paint or body work too. I'd guess the $$ into this breaks down similar to this:

$4k purchase price
$800 - 1k shipping (could be lower)
$6K motor rebuild (lower if not farmed out to machine shop)
$1k trans rebuild
$1.5k wheels and tires
$800 exhaust
$1k carpet, upholstery, lift kit & other incidentals

No labor included and its in the neighborhood of $15k invested.

Unfortunately, those who sink this much money into these trucks and other older vehicles are the one's who stand to lose the most when it comes time to sell. Owners down the road, after the person who forked over the initial cash outlay, usually end up winning in these scenarios.

1pistol1 - Bummer that you're burned out, but I know it happens. I see from older pics that the truck had type 8 mirrors when you bought it. Where did you get the new mirrors from and how stable are they on the highway?

Solid looking truck. I'd be all for it but it's a little more than I can afford to spend. I'd like to see some pics under the hood and interior.

I've seen that truck on ford-trucks.com. He probably has 5k in lift/wheels/tires. The front is supposed to be higher than rear on Prerunner style trucks. A lot of quality work done on this.
