I previously owned the same truck with a regular cab and no 4 wheel drive.
Both trucks had the same engine and transmission and other than the 4 wheel drive parts this one is the same except it has power steering is that this one has power steering.
Both trucks have had easily over 300,000 miles
put on them and both kept right on going and have needed few mechanical repairs.
It was because of my previous experience with this truck that I immediately decided to buy the one I have now with no haggling even though I knew it had some minor issues.
I didn't care because
I knew that after I spent a few hundred on it, I would have a truck that would run dependably for years to come.

I was 30 years old and my dad bought me this truck for $7500 cash brand new.
I've put 600,000 miles on it.
I'm 52 now and feel old but this truck does not (feel old).
Runs absolutely perfect.
I've changed the oil in it around 90 times.
The odometer quit about 11 years ago, the muffler 8 years ago and the windshield wipers about 9 years ago.
I've had 7 windshields, 3 clutches, a water pump, s-belt, several fuel filters, and a couple of brake jobs.
No power steering.
Electrical system is pretty messed up.
Gauge lights unreliable. Windows can barely get rolled up or down.
Major sun cracked dashboard.
Truck runs perfect.
Cost me nothing, basically, for 22 years.

I bought this truck for $750 in 07.
At the time the truck had just turned over to 200,000 miles.
I currently have 209,000 miles on it and I am sure it will go a lot farther.
This truck is not my daily driver.
It is used for camping, hauling kayaks, moving mulch, dirt, furniture, etc.
It often sits for a month without being started but always fires up right away and does whatever I ask of it.
This truck has been a great investment for me.
It serves my purposes and is very utilitarian.
I have had many people offer to take it off my hands.
The only maintenance I have done is some exhaust work, one brake line, a and a fuel line.
Cost was not more than $450.
Truck is 25 yrs old in 2 mo
