    Just wondering why this thing has been for sale as long as it has.
    Nice v8, 5speed, ARB, power steering seems like a great deal for under 7k. if only i had some extra money.

    I think I can say with confidence that the reason is, "because it isn't worth that much."

    The little bit of rust he talks about can be purchased in an old landcruiser here for 3100 dollars, easily. And originally-equiped landcruisers command more than V8 conversions, for the most part.

    I agree. That's a $4000-4500 truck. But then again I've become a true Yooper. I can get a Jeep like that in Skandia for $2500...

    Actually there are a couple of 40's in a back field in Skandia that the guy wants $2200 for both - I might go see how big the rust holes are... 8)

    Hello, it's me again.

    First off. It's been in our very own for sale section for a bit now. Secondly, it's overpriced (although not too bad); and last but not least;

    WHAT IS TECHNICAL ABOUT THIS POST?
