    I’m looking to purchasing this semi and was just provided a video of the the truck. It has some rust on it, should I keep looking? There’s quite a bit on the frame and then there is some under the hood.

    fyi, this is for a 2013 International with a Cummins engine. It has about 580k miles and they are asking 25k.

    Appreciate any thoughts!

    I would hard pass on that thing. That rust looks deep, very very deep. That frame may only have a few years left and is a disaster waiting to happen. Plus its from the era of block killing fuel pumps ONTOP of being a 2013 emissions vehicle which are well know to be....unreliable to put it mildly.

    Also that is a stupid amount of rust for 580k Here is my pete with 580k.

    Granted its 4 years newer but still has the same miles on the frame.
