This not a perfect new vehicle it is used and shows some use. Interior is okay, carpet is rough. interior panels around the cargo area are a little on the rough side. there is some surface rust under the rear wheel wells. Exhaust is mostly flex pipe. There is one error code that refers to the glow plug indicator light, probably needs the appropriate LED. Speedometer does not work, needs a cable/adapter or something along those lines. If I was going very far I used a Garmin to monitor my speed.
I went with the Dana 18 so that I had a 1:1 high range and 2.72:1 low range, which is higher and lower than stock. The detent is missing so it is possible to shift in to low 2WD.
So, why am I selling?... it has pretty much sat for the last couple of years. I need a truck for my work and I have little time for this anymore. It has started and run every time I went to start it and run an errand.
Did I mention this is a used vehicle? It is a collection of parts from different vehicles, if you are not mechanically inclined you probably should look at another vehicle. Your local shop my not want to touch this when you need a repair.
Would I drive this across the country? not me... I am getting too old for that kind of nonsense. but a younger person might enjoy it.
I will meet a shipper that you schedule.
You could tow it with the included tow bar, but you will need to come up with some tow lights. HF has some fairly cheap. but you may want to use some duct tape to keep them on .... I used to have some and the magnets are not all that great.
It will fit on a small trailer too. (6x10 or 6x12)
I can hold it for a reasonable amount of time as long as it is paid for.
Drop me a line and ask any questions you have. If you are local schedule a time to come look at it and drive it around the block.
