    I would say its solid. Getting up their in miles for that price but it is a one ton dually. I don't know what you plan to haul but I personally wouldn't buy a v8 gasser dually. Just my opinion.

    that all depends...i would say first things first, do you want a crew cab? would you put a hoist under the flatbed? basically, is the base truck what you are looking for or is it something you would settle for? for the price, probably ok...155 is high for a gas engine and it's obviously had some work done to it already but if you are prepared for a few future fixes then it honestly sounds like an ok deal...the fact that the lazy a$$ couldn't clean the inside ORRRR the outside shows me they didn't take great care of it, or cared for it in general...my first truck was a dodge gasser and it was nothing but problems, even after i fixed everything and had it ready to go it still had a bunch of issues with the next owner...

    long story short, i wouldn't personally buy it, but the price isn't terrible...has a little potential with the flatbed

    on second thought, take that red stripe off of it, clean it up, and build some side boards for the bed and that would be a nifty little work truck that wouldn't look half bad...i would personally put a hoist under the bed, if the bed would allow for a hoist, but it depends on what you are going to use it for...i would also replace the bed lights with LED's, it just gives it a cleaner/newer look as well as doesn't use as much energy and it's brighter..it's 4x4 which is nice, i would never buy a truck that didn't have 4x4
