Looking at buying a 3/4 ton pickup. Lookwed at one today.

1999 Chevrolet 2500 4x4 shortbed 98,000miles -- $14,200.00

Drove it around the neighborhood today. Seemed to drive well and looked in above average conditiion. Am planning on having it taken to a mechanic tomorrow.

What do you think. Is it worth $14k
Would you be nervous buying a truck with 98,000 miles?

Talk me out of it if you think I shouldn't bite.

I passed on the truck. I really need something with fewer miles.
