This is only a partial list of repairs/restoration.
Body: The vehicle has been in Dry Storage for the past 20 years. However, here is rust that accumlated in the first 15 years of life. Rust is present some of the rear seams, ut nothing major. The left floor pan could use some attention as the gas pedal bracket has worked loose. No accident damage whatsoever, ehicle drives very straight. In-person inspections are welcome.
Recommendations: vehicle capable of being driven DAILY. You can fix the valve seals now, r keep an eye on the oil level & keep motoring. The rust issues are not urgent. These trucks are built to a very high standard & rust mediation is not a big deal. The differential locks are non-op. Simple to fix, eeds master cyl/slave x 2.
Suspension: drives very straight & brakes very well. Possible to lock up front end on dry pavement! Still has original shocks, ut handles fairly well. Replaced the front track bar w/ bushings & steering arm.
Seats-RECARO front seats, 0 years old, ut I replaced the webbing & added additional foam support. Second row seat folds for additional storage. It weighs 100+ pounds.
