What do ya'll think?

A buddy of mine asked me my opinion of it, I think it's overpriced and looks like it might be in rough shape but what do ya'll think? http://allentown.craigslist.org/cto/5029263350.html

I would pass, that thing isn't going anywhere with a combo 4cyl/35" tires, looks like a ticking time bomb.

But with just 1 picture... It's hard to be sure

One of my concerns is the 9" of lift, how much of that is body lift and shackle lift which together shouldn't be over 2". Says it has disc brakes so maybe a 8.8 conversion and maybe a gear change. Too much of an unknown, the 35's and 4 banger don't bother me if everything else was changed to accommodate the 35" tires, including beefing up the steering.

I see 3" BL with 2" bucktooth style lift shackles. On top of 4" springs that all raise red flags for me !

Nothing too big jumps out to me, but I don't like the mileage. I wouldn't pay that much for it either.
