I think I have a jewel in this ol' Jimmy
The paint job from the factory was never that good on these units. Mine has the same ol' flaky, peely and patches of bare metal that you always see.
The plastic dashboard has erupted into the normal dash you see on these. Open wounds, but nothing falling out.
One portion of the headliner has fallen out.
I got a really straight body with no wrinkles, dings, dents, or scrapes. Really solid.
The engine is a replacement with only 3,000 miles on it, and it is super strong!
Transmission works impeccably, with no leaks.
No cracks, spots, or dings in any of the glass. The rear glass does not roll all the way down, so the back door does not open. I think it's a really minor problem.
The interior has been very well taken care of. Not but one little tear in the driver's seat, and it has been hand-sewn shut. The blue carpet has faded into grey, except where the original floor mats have covered it, and it is royal blue underneath.
The four-wheel drive is tight, and the transfer case has no leaks around it anyplace.
Need to be careful, as with any high ground clearance, but it doesn't feel unsafe.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
