Default Is this a good buy

I have been strongly considering putting a 98+ cab on my 97 ranger. Is this a fair price for a cab? I don't think 400 is all that much. Would I have to get the title and paper work for this or just put my dash in and be done with it?

id say thats a pretty fair price considering just the back side glass windows are worth more than $400 combined.

Might be worth it just for all the parts in it like all the power stuff and dash components. Looks like it might be a pain in that ass to actually restore it and apply it to your truck.

I don't really see what needs to be restored?

If the doors are rusty, he could always swap power stuff to his current doors. But I don't think he's really going for the cab just for the dash and power stuff.
