i dont understand why people post these questions in the dang classifieds. No one can price a truck out by information your giving. Maybe try posting the right section and provide some pics and more information. Just a thought

Thats alot for a single cab and it has alot of miles. You would be better off just getting a newer gaser with lower miles. If thats all you want to spend. These truck arnt cheap to fix.

5500 or walk away IMO. thats if everything checked out fine. spending that kinda cash on a 97 it would have to be fully operational in every kinda way there is

Its a lot of miles but its also never been chipped and had the snot run out of it. The reg cab I like, I'm 19 and don't have kids to haul around. I figure I can send the injectors to rosewoods for 850 and eventually put a clutch in it

Is it worth 6800 ? Not to me but that doesn't mean it's not worth it to you ... The true value of ANY object may it be a truck,car,boat or as simple as a pack of flash light batteries is only worth what a buyer is willing to pay for it ... Go with your gut if you think it's worth 6800 to you then thats what it's worth :ford:

If i'm not mistaken that truck is on craigslist... I would ask for current pics of any rust,dents,scratches on exterior and get good interior pics ... Most everyone has a cell that can take a short video so i would ask for a video of it running .... I know how it is i bought a 69 dart on ebay a few yrs back the guy totally misrepresented the car i pulled an empty trailer to pittsburgh pa and needless to say an empty trailer back to southeast ga ... Thats just part of it when buying something far off... So there you are again is that truck WORTH it to take a chance driving 8 hrs and possibly not buy it ...

He sent me some pics of it that i asked for specifically like tailgate, close ups of fenders, etc. I wish I was in GA so a truck body would last more than ten years

You can always check to see if another person on the site is nearby, throw them a few bucks for dinner for them to do an initial check for you.

Also, there are services out there that will do an inspection and send you a report for about $100. I did that once and it worked out fine. I did that because I traveled from Kentucky to Chicago dragging an empty trailer to find out the car was not as described and ended up lugging an empty trailer back. Yep, nearly two days and fuel money all gone.
