Ready to buy first Dmax

Hi guys, new here to the forum and to diesels. I am about to pull the trigger on a 04.5 CCSB 4x4, 183k, 4" cat back, edge juice, w/ air bags. It is in pretty decent shape, there are some scratches and dings here and there and it will need 1 or maybe 2 injectors, has a fuel gauge that doesnt work, and possibly a few tie rod ends...for $12k.

What do you think?

Price seems fair, if not low. I don't think the miles are an issue if it was taken care of. My truck has 222K and it still runs great with no big problems.

Before you replace the injectors, do the DIY injector cleaning. My balance rates are near perfect 20K miles after doing it.

Thanks guys, I think it checks out other than what mentioned.

Premis...what DIY injector cleaning are you talking about, like just a fuel additive to clean off the injector itself?

Yup, I have a 95 XJ with front and rear Dana 44s, ARBs, Chromos, and 37s...tearing up the rubicon and other trails around Northern NV and Cali!

You have a XJ StylerG?

Just out of curiosity, why do you say it might need 1 or maybe 2 injectors?
