    Well without seeing it, it's a hard call but I will say yes a 99 for 4K sounds pretty good.

    Well theres no rust on the body but its pretty scratched up & both sides at the very rear of the pickup bed right behind the tires are dented.

    I'm figuring for $4k you can't go wrong. Dump insert along is worth a good $1500.

    I love my 5.4. If it's been taken care of and NOT beaten to death, that motor should last another 100k

    I'm thinking of just using it this fall & winter (I do landscaping), keep the dump insert & sell it in spring for like $5000.

    That sounds like a fair price for the truck!
