Itís a tough call - buying used is a gamble.
I bought a 1995 T100 4x4 with 3.4 V6 and only 207,000 miles. I blew the money on a used vehicle inspection and compression leak down check. I strongly suggest a used vehicle before buying from a shop that knows that type of vehicle. This truck was far from perfect but I feel was worth the $4400 but time will tell.
The owner of the shop that did my used vehicle inspection said I could of bought a half ton domestic with 100k miles for roughly the same price.
