In general, it's always better to find/pursue a used truck outside of the rust-belt (ie, no snowplow use or exposure to winter road salt). My guess is that you're specifically looking at this TV (3500) because none are found in your area. I travel throughout central Wisconsin and northern Illinois; I would be happy to visit the dealership and take some (better) pics of the 3500 if the dealership isn't too far from my travel(s). Just PM me if interested (note: I'm not interested in a 3500). Eventually, you will need to visit the dealership and inspect it firsthand if you decide to "move" on the 3500.
Thanks for the offer.
I found a southern truck that's never seen snow. 2008 3500. Pick it up next week.

You might be able to find a vehicle inspector for less than $150 to take a good look at it for you.
Kind of like home inspectors.
Could save you a trip or make it worth your while.
They give you a report along with pictures.

Just a thought.

Might Google that service in the area of the truck.

Best regards,
