Rep: 21 roadrage150 is on a distinguished road

Those are tough, durable rigs.

When you look at one, take your time and check all the fluid levels, and the condition of the fluid(example: automatic transmission fluid that is brown and burnt smelling instead of a red or pink color.) Also check for signs of body repair.

I would also be a good idea to take the car you are looking at to a mechanic you trust and have it checked out. Any reputable car dealer should not have a problem with you doing that.

Be careful in selecting which one you buy, and you'll have a good rig that will last a long time.
