Is this Ford F150 4x4 a good deal?

1998 F150XL tritin supercab longbed, 4.6L v8, Automatic transmission 4wd, 221,xxx miles for $3900/bo. Looks good and seats little dirty. But it va state safety inspection and registeration expired 3/2010 because he bought a new truck. Thought about offering 3500 for it. Kelly Blue Book has 3800 for excellant and 3600 for good condition in private party value.

Re: Is this Ford F150 4x4 a good deal?

Providing you've already taken the high mileage into consideration, if the owner can provide full maintenance records for the time he owned the vehicle it might not be a bad buy. Without photos of everything PLUS a test drive, it's hard to tell what a vehicle is worth. Be sure to test drive it and try the 4x4 system on a gravel road to make sure everything engages at least somewhat smoothly (might take a second or two crawling at low speed to engage 4wd on higher mileage vehicles). Turn as tight as you can with it, and listen for any abnormal creaks, groaning that might suggest the front suspension is shot. Push on the rear bumper, if the truck doesn't stop and level out within a few seconds, and it keeps bouncing up and down - walk away because that's a sure sign that it hasn't been well taken care of.
