I'd think it is more likely 108K.

assuming that that one must be a 5 digit odometer... it MAY only be 8000, probably 108,000 though. i certainly would not buy it if it only has that much on it, means its been sitting too long/extremely short trips...
lowest ive seen on a 6 digit odometer was 59,000km, or ~36-37000 miles...

look at the oil residue on the inside of the hood. That would *never* happen in 8k miles. I say 108k too

its a very clean paint job... thoroughly did the inside and outside of the vehicle. Nice seat covers, Looks cosmetically very clean. bad long shackle lift though...definitely not 8K. If the owner said "It might be 108K I'm not sure since I'm the second owner"...... its 108k. If it was only 8k He'd know. There's a slight difference in transmission wear and engine wear....

i rekon rust buildup from lack of use from 8k would be worse than the wear from 108k...

The owner says the samurai has a million "idle miles", the original owner did lots of short runs, and would leave the motor idling for hours sometimes.
