This truck has over 300k miles on it, however I'm a 15 year old and getting this truck for free from my dad. The car engine broke down not too long ago, but my dads promise is that he will be getting the same engine it came with and brand new tires that it has. Brand brand new. Not used. So with that, would there be anything else that I would have to be worried about? There is a lot of rust on the bottom by the tire and the tire shroud thing. And some small parts in other area. Small parts I'm going to pay out of pocket to fix. The bigger parts of rust.. is probably going to cost too much. The inside of the truck, is all well kept except the driver seat has ripped. And some lights are broken. (Mirror turning light, inside top light) Thanks so much for helping me!
