2005 V8, timing belt broke, as is $1500

2005 V8. Center and rear lockers, air suspension, heated seats, factory hitch and harness (installed after original purchase), decent tires, normal wear for a 153,000 mile vehicle, generally good condition except for damage that occurred when the timing belt broke. All the blacked out chrome and the wheels are plastidip.

The Good: I've owned it since about 80k miles. Regular maintenance. I just put a new compressor on it and air suspension has been working well since. Clean title.

The Bad: The timing belt broke at 153k miles. I anticipate significant damage. I was just thinking about replacing it again, too. Check engine light has been intermittent, and I know the variable intake wasn't working correctly. There is a very small dent in the left rear door. The vehicle was rear ended a few months ago. The damage was mostly cosmetic: the bumper was pushed into the tow hitch, and the body panels are off a few mm. There is water ingress into the rear cargo and spare tire area. The brake vacuum lines are dry rotted and brittle. I temporarily repaired then with heat shrink about 2 months ago.

Last five numbers of the VIN: 7756

LOL! There's no "s" on "come". It's an instruction, not an offer!!
