    98 is old but the miles sound good, (although those are VERY hard miles)
    you should be able to get an isuzu for that cost tho.

    when you have a dump you'll be glad you got it no matter what the price was.
    Look on craigs list and just see what similar vehix r going for- keep in mind that the dump is worth $4k, so do you think $4-5K is good for that truck?
    Talk em down if u can, but I think the price is ok if you have the bucks
