Incorrect. This baby comes with a N/A OM616, weighs in at 7900lbs fully loaded and is quite peppy in town. With the 4.11-axle and 4 gears it goes to 50-55mph approximately, depending on how homesick it is

No mention of a carfax report or if the odo is working .I cant stress how important a clear title is also ,if you buy it with another individuals name (open title )on the paper work you better make sure its all in order .No money should change hands if the paper work looks fishy.Know what the paper work should look like and dont go for the phrase ,"This is all you need".If its not correct, good luck trying to contact the person you bought it from.Another ONE TO WATCH OUT FOR would be a trade of some sort ,if that person is willing to trade another item of value for a vehicle this is a RED FLAG.The underlining truth of the matter is usually a title problem were the title cant be reissued with that person holding the paper work.NAME ON TITLE MATCHES SELLER IS A GOOD RULE TO FOLLOW.
