    Just thougt I would show all of you my new ride. I am a happy dude!

    The body is in good condition, the interior is in excellent condition. When I was looking at it, the guy selling it was listing off all of the problems with it:

    -the power windows didn't work
    -the AWD was messed up
    -No rear Bumper, taken off for the hi-lift jack mount.
    -a couple of other small things, The AWD was the biggest thing.
    So He sold it for what he owed on it.
    I took the window switches apart and cleaned them, now they all work. I got on the cool forum and asked about the AWD, and was directed on how to check it, and it works perfectly. It has been converted to 2WD-4WD-AWD. So that is a BIG plus. It also has a professional 2" body lift, and new tires on the new street-locks.
    I cleaned up the interior and it is way cool. I did a full tune up and it runs smooth and quiet. And of course I already got my Ipod hardwired to my stereo, gotta have the tunes.
    Now the best part: it was $2300.00
    First up: new rear bumper, then front bumper, and navigation. I would also like a roof rack. got big plans for this thing.


    Woo Hoo
    :D

    It is AWD, but it has been converted to the 2WD/4WD set-up.

    My guess is 91 or 92. . . It's definitely Pre - '94.

    Kent, i'm a little confused on it being converted from 2wd to 4wd to Awd? A little strange. I can see the locking hubs for 2wd and 4wd, but Awd? WTF?

    I think livelarg is just an excited (justifiably) noob who's either confusing AWD and Fulltime 4WD or using the terms interchangeably.

    The way I'm decyphering this is that it was Fulltime 4WD and it has the hub kit installed.

    It looks that way to me. Someone just put a part-time kit on it. I saw that advertised somewhere...

    Yes, it is a 92'




    Yes I am, it is full time 4WD.
    And it does have the hub conversion kit installed.


    According to sleeoffroad.com, 91-92's did not come with the locker option, so I assume mine doesn't either.

    This truck was originally from colorado, don't know if it could be Eric's or not.

    is $2300.00 too much for this truck? It's definetly worth it to me!




    Yes I am excited :D

    That is a good price for any 80 series. Save some money to get it 100% mechanically then start adding the accessories you want.

    And congrats on the new truck! :cheers:

    No, it isn't too much. I was just kidding. Many other threads talked about holding out for a cruiser with lockers. For me, I would buy a good price cruiser even it has no lockers. You got a good deal there.

    Looks great!! It's the exact same as our 92 we had before we got our 97! It was the two-tone brown/champagne with black rock crawlers.
