I would avoid it, has too many issues and it is likely a TURD.

Just too many problems that can get expensive fast, security systems are the pits to diagnose, air bags are very expensive if they are bad, you have grounding issues with the lights, and an obvious charging system problem, the fuel gauge could be the common sender failure but you won't know until you test it.

Keep shopping. As everyone else has already said. Too many problems. Take the money you'd spend on fixing this truck and buy a newer one with no, or at least less, issues. HTH. -Jim
