What do you expect if checking out a car being sold this way?
I call the person and talk for a while. If they sound like a flake, I say "thanks, I'll think about it." If the sound good and give the right answers to my questions I make and appointment and usually meet at their house.

bottom of drivers side B-pillar looks like it has a bad rust cancer developing.

When you are looking at 10+ year old trucks I would be much more concerned with body rust than surface rust on the frame. Clearly any truck that's a dozen year's old is going to have some rust if its in the rust belt and is being driven.

That looks nice. It says "locking hubs". Are those manual or electric?

Agreed. THey look manual. Not really a problem. Just one more thing to remember before backing down the ramp.

I swapped my Ranger to manual from the auto locking hubs. I had too many issues with the auto lockers. Very poor design that I hope has been fixed over the years.

At my previous employer we had to have the electric locks replaced and it was not cheap!
