It’s in northern NJ, about 70-80 miles from me, depending on route.
The sidesteps rusted off and there are some small rust spots like the ones you see above.
There’s a similar rust spot in the passenger doorwell but it is worse and has a bit of a hole in it. Here are some undercarriage pics
not terrible but not ideal. and here are the interior shots
i contributed to a few of those miles
4WD shifter, radio, and heat work well. would need a proper cleaning
I checked the fluids and they’re alright... the transmission fluid is fine. would change the oil. When I drove it, it started right up and shifts perfectly but the engine runs a bit rough. Drivable but idk. Both tanks work but when switching to the rear one the needle goes past F
good news is the brakes were fine and they recently did some work to them
the asking price is $3800 plow included but since i don’t need the plow i was able to negotiate down to $2,000 without plow... but didn’t buy it. I’m kinda thinking it might not be a bad price at $1500 if they accept it but I would need to tow it home and fix it up, register it, get it inspected, etc.
would replace the mirrors, bumpers, remove the bedcap and add a tailgate, fix up the rusty spots and replace the shackles
what do you guys think? not planning on using it for DD purposes obviously but I would be using it to tow/move around an ATV and side by side with a plow (so total weight would be under 3,500 pounds including trailer [which i don’t have] easily) for a 160 mile trip every few months
