That does not look like a truck roof. DENNYI found this truck that I’m thinking of buying. There’s no rust underneath, and it’s completely stock. 300k miles, 4x4, 7.3.
The only rust is on the roof. Pics attached. Thoughts?

Excursion? Sorta a truck.That does not look like a truck roof. DENNY
Reminds me to work on aunt's Wagoneer with a rusted roof and probably stuck railings. The hailstorm did some good damage before being parked under the tree. We'll just finish installing the shocks and nitto ridge grappler tires on the Wrangler before we can clear the garage.If you pulled the rack it would be easy to sand down, primer, and paint with rattle can. Once done fill any holes with threaded screw and aircraft nut RTV/O-ring/rubber washer of choice to seal it. This will require pulling headliner but should get the job done pretty cheap and should last for years. If you want to keep the rack I would pull it, sandblast and power coat the mail rails. DENNY
I picked it up for $8k. It’s is remarkably good shape, too. I think the turbo is showing it’s age, but that’s an easy fix. Otherwise, it just needs new hoses and a new belt, idlers, and I’ll probably swap the water pump for a t444e and put a new fan clutch in it - at 300k the one that’s on it is probably toast.well as long as there is no sign of leaks on the head liner. What did it cost? These X's can fetch a lot of $$$$$$$ today. My wife will never give away here baby. its a 2003 7.3 X limited 4x4. has just over 265k. Hers is very clean no rust original paint, many upgrades. Though AZ sun has started to show, but still good enough for now. It is a great SUV like nothing else.
