Replaced gas tank. Leak at the seam of tank.
Cleaned brake drums, they were locking up very bad.
Replaced passenger side CV joint & boot. CV boot was torn when I purchased vehicle.
Replaced clutch at 58000 miles.
Power steering fluid leaks excessively at 62000 miles. Still adding fluid as needed. No mechanical failures.
Replaced exhaust at 62500 miles.
Interior is in excellent condition.
Exterior is starting to rust. Very minor.
Mechanically in good shape, a few hiccups here and there.
I gather that whomever owned this vehicle before I drove it off the used dealer lot let it sit for a long time. a 1990 with 63000 miles on it now.
The 4 Wheel drive is great for this truck. The light weight allows you to really get some good wheel spin and glide right through mud & sand.
Could definitely use some more horsepower. I'm considering adding a MSD box and some beefier plug wires, perhaps a cold air intake.
Getting horrible gas mileage -- 15mpg!
