    Hi everyone and thanks for all the help so far. I found a 2013 Black GEN1 Raptor SCREW, Nav, California/Arizona 1 Owner. 75k miles, ADD front bumper with integrated lights, bed cover for low $30k. I looked it over and I have a verbal on the truck pending a PPI on Monday with my mechanic. I will get it up on a lift and he will give me an honest opinion.

    I found it right when he listed the truck Thursday night so I am the first to see this truck, its not been detailed which I like because I can see it in the wild, so to speak.

    A few items:
    • I couldn't get the front camera to turn on when pulling the Diff Knob (user error maybe). I want to do the sync3 conversion so that isn't a big deal to me currently.
    • The truck was in Arizona and Ca. and underneath is a question mark for me its been a while since I have owned a truck.
    • I did not hear the diff clunking sound but I might need to try again
    • A few strange paint issues. In time I will fix those after all its just paint.
    • He says he did not off road this truck, it was mostly driven to work.
    • My budget is low $30k range.

    PPI Monday, will let you know what happens.​

    your expectations of a used vehicle aren’t realistic, it’s a used truck that someone drove outside - rust is inevitable.

    a quick google search and I found the dealer of the truck; it’s also in your video. If it has a clean car fax that price is solid.

    if you want a showroom vehicle buy new.

    I passed on the truck. Once we got under it, we were able to identify frame damage, leaks and lots of rust. I had my suspicions but my mechanic confirmed.

    I will keep looking.
