Dyno....I've sold two trucks on eBay in the past.....one of which being my dually. Most times people makeing a big buy like a car/truck will be very cautious about makeing the purchase....all i can advise you is to contact the seller and prearrange something with them if you win......most time for a big money purchase i would ask for the option of getting out if i'm not satisfied with what they described it as......but i always let them know i will cover their eBay expences.....I think its liek $80 to sell a truck on eBay so i atleast give them that much.

Since its in IL, why dont you get the location of it and maybe one of us locals can swing out and check it over for ya? Let me know

I've bought a couple of cars on eBay. On one, we used the escrow service (at my cost). Basically, after the auction ended, my funds were sent to an escrow company. The car was shipped and I had 3 days to inspect and either keep (and release the funds) or ship back. It cost me a few hundred extra, but was worth it.

Hope this helps.

I bought my Suburban on E-bay. I told the guy selling it if it wasn't as good as he claimed it was, I would not buy it. Lucky for both of us the truck was great.

Its a high mileage Bigblock Burb a 1996 its at NorthWest car sales in Addison Ill.Looks real clean on Ebay thought it might serve as a good tow rigg until the economy turns around and I can afford something newer! the item # is 2406574599 take a look and tell me what you think!!!

Things to watchfor on high mileage burbs of this vintage.
Transmission, brakes, & transfer case.
