I might be a bit scared buying a truck with that many "mods" a transmission that has been abused with that much HP might need a rebuild ($3000+) its your money but spend it wisely. good luck

Many LLYs where know for over heating so keep that in mind if it hasn't been addressed. In line with what BMax said, Personally I don't like purchasing any vehicle that has been modified by someone else.

The price seems good otherwise.
