I'd still go with the Mits Fuso. Especially if the guy is motivated to get rid of it.

The fuso is the way to go... those trucks are bullet proof. Plus the cab over design is awesome if you work in an urban area.... The isuzu is a good price too But honestly best bang for the dollar is the fuso

So I went to see the fuso yesterday. The truck runs and drives great. Besides some surface rust on the box the truck is mint.

I made an offer at 27k. He came back to me at 31k. What do you guys think?

Anything I should look out for?

That's a pretty good price. I would be a buyer at 31, but try and knock him down to 30 at least

31 is very reasonable.... depending on how touchy you are to rust it can be repaired if caught in time. I've had whole bodys sandblasted and painted before.

The rust is all surface. And it's only on the fold down sides of the box. I have time to screw around this winter so I'm gonna sand the whole box down n paint.

I did the box on my 97 dumper and after 3 seasons I had no rust come back out

Yea so long as you use real good self etching primer you will be fine. Problem here is they use so much salt it eats anything steel.
