The tires are too big for no lift and the price is kinda high for an '04, but maybe ok considering the mileage. Of course the odo is off if he didn't change the speedo gear with the tires....

It looks like the mileage and condition of mine when I bought it. Price is whatever the market is. I look at 'em, in 'em, under 'em, and then drive them. I wouldn't buy one that has been in the surf or mudded. Too hard on stuff. As far as an 04, very happy with mine. Have fun.

If you need to, test drive it to my house and we can compare it to my 04 as far as wear and tear, etc.

Looks and seems like a good one without physically seeing it. Price seems like a good deal with as few miles on it as there is.

Well? What did you do about the purchase? It does need some type of lift with those wheels and tires.

What size tires did he put on? Is it a 4 cyl? Have you test driven it? Can the engine handle the larger tires? Do you plan on going offroad in it? Are you planning on lifting it?
