$900 without the waste vegetable oil kit isn't bad, though it may be a rust bucket. Honestly, I'd rather drive something like that than a Ranger or S-10.
Stop paying for animal enslavement, cruelty, and slaughter. Save your health and the planet. Go vegan! I did 15 years ago.

Not bad, have definitely seen far worse done.

The $900 price without the grease kit, minus enough for an injector rebuild, and that it comes with a spare IP, and that $900CAD is like $12USD, seems like a fair price.

You should! As others have said, it does look like a decent job. The tailgate actually looks professionally done too! However, I fear there may be too much rust, and that is why the cheap price.
