Vehicle runs and drives great. I daily drove it for years and is still driven almost every day. Has been an extremely reliable vehicle. The pictures focus on cosmetic flaws. I can send you more pictures if you wish. I plan on posting a video of the truck on Youtube soon and will put the link on this post when it is complete. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions.
This truck has dual range 4wd (Hi/Low). a 4 speed manual transmission. and a 1. 8L EA81 boxer 4 cyl engine with Weber 32/36 carburetor. Runs and drives great. has brand new tires (about 25 miles on them) and fresh paint on the stock wheels. The interior is in fantastic shape for this model year. The drivers seat has a big tear. but both could certainly be reupholstered rather than replaced. The carpet could stand to be replaced. Also included are some rear jump seats from an older model which I never installed as well as a high top bed cap in decent shape. This truck has gotten 30 miles per gallon on the highway. Many parts have been replaced in the past 20. 00 miles. I have recorded all maintenance and the list is available upon request.  

This is an extremely convenient vehicle. as it is formidable off road. the bed can fit a 4x8 sheet of plywood no problem. handles surprisingly well. shifts very smooth. has heat and A/C. pulls a small trailer or boat nicely. and brakes quickly. With the Weber carb. it is not painfully slow and I have no problems doing 70-80 mph on the highway.

The truck has some small issues that I am currently taking care of one at a time:

1. There is a fair amount of rust. Structurally. the vehicle is perfectly sound but the rocker panels are gone (I do have some new ones to include with the vehicle). there is some bed rust. particularly on the driver side wheel well. certain exhaust components (resulting in a small exhaust leak) and the floor boards are starting to rust through at a few small places. My friend is a welder and we have been repairing the rust one step at a time on the weekends. it will probably take us another 2 or 3 weeks before it has all been patched and undercoated. I will also likely paint the bed.  

2. There is a small oil leak from an oil pump gasket and a small coolant leak somewhere under the intake manifold. I plan to take care of them both soon.

3. The paint is starting to look rough on the hood and roof. and there are dents. I will possibly be taking care of the dents once I finish #1 and #2 on this list. and may then consider a paint job. There are also a few rust spots at various places on the body I may remedy.

This is a 31 year old. utilitarian vehicle and as such. may have some small issues that I am not aware of or have forgotten to mention.  As it sits. this truck starts every time. drives and handles great. and is perfectly suitable to be daily driven if necessary. It was inspected not too long ago. though the sticker has since expired as it is not required.  
You are bidding on this vehicle AS IS and if I do not get a satisfactory offer. I will likely complete the above repairs before listing it for a greater price. Over recent years. the value of these vehicles has increased greatly. and somebody who buys this vehicle with the intention of restoration will be making a very solid investment. Buyer is responsible for shipping arrangements.
