From personal experience, depending on the owner, watch the cab mounts, cab corners, floor pan, box quaters box floor. Just your basic shit but those are the places they seem to rot the most (around this area anyways).

pshh i bought an 83 2.8 4speed and the guy totally ripped me off. Dont buy sight unseen unless your really sure. The brake lines were cut (manslaughter haha) hole in tank. If the leaf springs and front coils are originals, they might need replacement if the owner before was hard on her
