Well damn, congrats!

But through word of mouth I heard of an 07 manual with 34k miles local that was up for 20k. Had a Fabtech 6 inch lift, Pro Comp wheels, and fresh 35s. Ended up getting it for 19k and went out wheeling the next day.
Based on the year / miles and mods that's *very well bought*

A couple of things to keep eyes on with the '07's: weak rear diff and the fender bulging. The former is fixed by either replacing gears or replacing the rear axle, the latter isn't really fixable. No reason to fiddle with the rear diff unless you want to pre-emptively regear for those 35's.

Re: Possible NSSE Deal?

Thank you everyone! I'm very happy with the purchase overall.

My friend pointed out a very slight bulge on each front fender under the hood, no tearing though. I'll see about welding some sort of support bracket over each bulge just in case it spreads. Haven't done much research into the issue honestly, but will do so at a later time.

Right now the plan is to enjoy it how it is and modify what I see fit in the future. Skid plates and rock sliders are going to be first though.
