This truck ran and drove well with some other issues of note. On the exterior I noted there are minor misc scratches around the vehicle. Normal for mileage and most too small to see in photos. The vehicle shows some misc dents. A hole in the front bumper was noted. The front bumper shows damage, see picture. The wipers and and all of the exterior lights worked well. The tail gate shows some wear, see picture. The underside shows areas of minor surface rust. See pictures.

Inside I noted the horn doesn't work. The seats show moderate wear. This truck has been smoked in. I noted the climate controls and stereo worked well. The windows, locks, and mirrors worked well.

Under the hood I noted full fluids. There were no visual engine bay leaks.

I found no issues on the test drive. The engine had plenty of power and there were no misfires or smoking. The transmission shifted as designed with no harsh engagement or slipping. The steering was responsive and the suspension was firm and the vehicle handled well. There were no abnormal vibrations or odd noises. The brakes were firm with no pulsation felt. There were no leaks found to the underside of the vehicle.

See below and pictures for more info.
