Default I almost bought this truck

Ive wanted a 4x4 for a while now and this poped up saturday and I called the guy and said I would come get it. He said it only needed a axle so I figured I would just put mine in and I get there and it just looked like it was hammered hard and put up wet with 329k and they took the whole axle apart. Then I start checking the oil and its high about a gallon and is brand new oil so I look at the radiator and its low at least a gallon so I tell the guy I think it has a bad head gasket and then I ask him about the plow mount under the bumper and he say if I buy it he has to remove all that so hes gona probly hack up the already fragile wireing of these trucks. He also said it would drive but he had the drive shaft hung up with bailing wire so I figured the trasfer case could be broke as well. There was grease everywhere and it was spray painted it was in pretty bad condition and it was a shame since it was a top of the line truck in 93 with leather buckets and power everything I offered $2000 since its just a parts truck and not a very good one. what do you guys think? 1993 Dodge 3500

i dont think those are stock seats these trucks did not come with leather and i would take it for 2 grand and sell it for parts, people kill for the getrag in 4x4 and this would make a perfect candidate for a auto to manual swap! i want this truck!!
