I'll sell you one with 180K and no seat tears for $1,500. 400+K is longer than most of these last as you can tell by the excessive recent repairs required.

You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometime you just might find you get what you need.

The engine and/or transmission could go tomorrow. Or they might make it another 400,000 miles. The former is the more likely of those two outcomes. However, if the OP is happy with the trade and willing to take a chance, it's not necessarily a bad move. Keep in mind we haven't seen the truck.
Whoever said there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes never had a cheap Jaguar.

08 Triumph Street Triple 35,xxx miles, lowered 10mm in front, Pirelli Angel GT tires, EBC HH brake pads, otherwise stock.
88 Jaguar XJS V12 94,xxx miles. Work in progress.

I'd bite on either vehicle, but try and get the price down. I got a 2.5 5spd w/ soso body and a parts car for 2900. Of course, the head gasket went right away, much fewer miles than this one.


All things are burning, know this and be released.
