theres some things I'll agree and disagree with.

but you can still get a loaded 4x4 for cheaper is what im saying.

most people dont even know the difference of an level2 anyways...

The first one is legit, but a private seller does me no good for a trade in. All of the rest are out of my range.

Im going to stop editing now
The exhaust doesn't bother me, I can fix that.

I honestly didn't notice the center console there. It looks like it locks with a key. Sounds kinda nice actually. I will have to look more into it.

Didn't notice the missing cover, this will be replaced if I buy.

Good point on the fogs, this will be brought up too. I would gladly replace them, but it WILL be brought up.

They do not look like 31's, this will also be taken into consideration. If I get a good deal I would have no issue putting 32's on it, and selling the current tires on CL.

I don't care if a tow hook is tweaked, but I do see that now that you brought it up. As for the rear, where should it be?

Thanks again, its very helpful to go into this with more knowledge.

Mileage and distance are both too high. I don't want to travel that far just for a test drive. Know what I mean?

What kills me though man, is your willing to pay more for a POS when i posted a very nice one with less miles, better shape, less money. whatever, your money. i personally wouldnt buy that black one, Level II or not.

I understand, but that first one you posted which I am guessing you are referring to is a private sale which doesn't help me out considering my trade in. Also, its out of state, I am pretty far from PA, and I don't have the time to drive that far anyways. All the other ones are in Ohio which is like 6 hrs. I appreciate the effort though, and maybe I'll find another. This is not set in stone, if I don't get the truck I want, for the price I want, I am still in a great position. Both of my vehicles run great, like I said, I just want a nice 4x4.

No im referring to the second in line, the silver one. Either way, i would not buy the truck you posted. you can have so much better for 10-11k than that

I will keep my options open. If I can grab this truck for a steal, I will, if not, I will walk away and enjoy my vehicles until a better deal arises. I feel this one is worth a look though.

----------

That second one has over 100k and is only 2k less btw. I am not getting into a loan for a vehicle over 100k, no way.

It mounts to the frame rail on the passenger side, and comes down just below the bumper. Trucks with a factory hitch had the rear tow hook deleted because the tow hook and hitch use the same holes in the frame. Thats why the black truck doesn't have one.

Hopefully I will hear from the dealer tomorrow and they will take more detailed pictures and answer some questions.
