Still worth a closer look IMO. I am in no hurry and I will only buy when I am completely satisfied.

You know I am not arguing with you, and I appreciate you looking at it right? I would have never found so many flaws on that truck (from the pics at least) without you guys.

don't do it.... like everyone else has said it looks like it's been used and abused, and i see too many flaws in the pics to even concider going to look at it. something that new with that few miles should'int have that many flaws, if any.

if it was me i would look for an older 4x4 for much less $ to use as a project / winter DD, sell the B2500, and just leave the 6 as is ( 'caus that's a nice looking car the way you've got it!)

I know I'm late to the game here on this thread, but another thing is the hitch looks like a rust party. from that, it doesn't look good for the rest of the frame and underbody. those front tow hooks being tweaked makes me suspect that the frame is screwed up, as they come straight off the horns of the frame.

I realize that, but its killing me that you are still considering even looking at it after ten people gave our opinions on it. You say that that its still worth a closer look at it, what's your reasoning?

I for one would not buy a truck that had a seat that was torn on the right side like that. had a center console that looks like a walmart special just stuffed in there, the plastic trim very neglected, rust like crazy....etc... etc....

I would take Dixie's opinion to the bank and keep looking, but if you are really keen on this truck, well atleast you joined the right forum for when the rust, frame and potential other problems arrise, well some of the guys here really know their shit.

That truck is trashed, and 70k miles for $12k? Hell no. Are you dead set on a FX4? Or would a nicely optioned up 4x4 XLT do it for you too? Finding FX4's in general is pretty difficult, nevermind a level 2. I have only seen a couple pop up around me int he past year (and I bought one of those).

i paid a little less for my level 2, it has less miles and it was minty.


Im with these guys, the black one looks like it has been wrecked. No fogs, fubar'd tow hooks, missing panals, and some body lines dont quite line up.


Also, to the guy who said level2's are over rated and you can add all the stuff to a reg 4by. Well, you can, i wont deny that. But some people would rather have it come from the factory that way.


btw, level 2's with a hitch do not come with the blingin rear tow hook

Alright guys, you convinced me to keep looking. The dealer didn't even call or email me today which means they probably suck anyways. I've got a Mazda6 meed in Niagara Falls in June and they would lynch me if I showed up in a Ranger anyways lol.
