Yeah I agree thats sounds to high. My concern would be if you decide to sell it in a couple of years, for whatever reason, you wont be able to get anything near what you paid.
I do not do this for the love of the game. I do this for the money.

From my experience the KBB web site is very high on their prices. is a lot more in line when it comes to pricing.

Don't get attached to it emotionally. I know the temptation of bright shiny things. But the best deals are made on things that you can walk away from. I would take the best 2 reasons not to buy the truck and just tell the owner that those are the reasons the truck is only worth "x" to you. Here is a good one:

I called my bank, and they will only lend me 9K on a 1996 truck, so that is all I can offer.
