Pretty nice truck.

Whats the deal with the gooseneck hitch? Is the driver's seat ripped to shreds?

I mean its not the deal of the century but if its a clean original truck with a lot of easy miles, its not THAT bad... 14-15K would be a good price in my opinion...

The ball is just flipped over when not in use.

I noticed that too on the Driver's seat....no pic probably means it's toast.

What I mean is, was the truck a hotshot rig (bad) or did the dudes wife pull her horse trailer once in a while (good) or was it a landscapers truck and towed around an excavator or bobcat every day (somewhere in the middle)

I've got the ol' B&W turnover ball in my truck too Its nice to have and as far as Im concerned its a "bonus" even if you dont plan to use it (you can get a 5th wheel hitch that mounts to it) BUT everyone sees it and immediately thinks heavy towing use. 20-25 years ago that was a big deal but at this point in time I dont know if heavy towing use is even a deal breaker anymore.... Especially on an aging truck that is going to need things done regardless...

Let us know if you buy the truck!

You're not discussing finding a Honda Ridgeline with a GN hitch in the bed.

It's an HD....designed from the ground up as a tow rig. That's what it's built for.
Fearful that someone might of towed something with it....silly, IMO.

I'd be more concerned if they didn't tow with it, just random mall crawls it's whole life.

You're right. I'm not discussing a honda ridgeline with a gooseneck hitch.

We are however discussing paying a premium for a used truck. If the vehicles usage history is of no concern, well then you sir are an unusual buyer.

Its less about the number of miles and more about how the truck was used and maintained through out those miles. Odds are good if the truck was maintained well that it will be just fine, however the mileage should still be considered in the price of the truck. If the guys selling it at the price of a 10K mile truck, walk.
