I just brought this home tonight. This was the first 80 I have ever worked on. No HG ever done. Leaks power steering fluid, needs an antena mast, and woo hoo it has lockers. The lady thought I was crazy to buy it and thought it should be hauled away. No body damage and the interior is much cleaner than my daily driver. Sorry, had to brag.

$2500. But lets see what it costs to get the PM's up to date. I looked at it this morning and saw that the P/S pump needs a reseal. I have all the parts because my '94 does also. I am afraid to pull the front diff fill plug although it didn't make any noises.

Nice, I bought my 91 with new BFG ATs for $2500 too. And I just spent $3000 on PM....

Oh well, I know what I have now! LOL

Nice steal. I would have jumped at it, too. Bought mine with 202,000 on the clock and just did $3000 in repairs, but I bought it for around $4000. I'm still ahead of the curve, IMO. These vehicles are worth sinking money into, especially if you can do some of the repairs. I hope you're able to keep your repair bills to a minimum.

I paid $12,500 for my '94 4years ago or so and do not regret it at all. I have resealed the knuckles and replaced the contacts in the starter and that is it. It has over 230K and burn a quart of oil in 3500 miles as it did at 150K. It has never let me down.
