History
Picked it up for $1200 bucks inspected and working good, took off the box and fixed lots of mild frame rot and replaced a box cross member and mount, patched the rockers pretty seriously, repaired/replaced all the cab mounts (The metal not the rubber :) replaced the passenger side leaf spring set and replaced the front brake pads and rotors. That all got me through an inspection and more recently I replaced the thermostat, serpentine belt and tensioner, all four shocks, rear brake shoes and hardware. She has lots of kms and I've put a lot of kms on her with not a single problem, only things that have needed replacing are what I listed which is all due to regular wear or abuse. She has the box off of a 4wd and the truck is a 2wd, 3.9 v6 is usually plenty of power but the four speed tranny really takes away a lot of what the engine could be. Incredibly happy I bought it, absolutely love everything about this truck and it suits my needs perfectly. Hope to acquire a 5-speed 4wd with the 3.9 in the future.
