I think he did ok. For $2k what do you want? Plus, I'm sure that seller had no issue getting him the pictures he requested

Kickstand is just jealous that you can haul bikes (even what you call a motorcycle) without some sort of a "strapon"

My parents owned a v6 4x4 Dak with an AX-15. It was a 94, but if I remember correctly it got about 16ish MPG.

don't worrry about it Ryan, I really wanted a stick and this was going to be better for what I wanted to do. It can get banged up without me worrying too much about it.

Makes perfect sense, I did the same except that I paid $400 for a rusty ass F150 with a 6/stick to haul my crap in. But it mostly sits by the curb and rusts

Let us know.

Whatever I was going to end up buying would have been around 3-4k$ (but still probably in worse shape or gazillion miles), by picking this up in good shape (the things that matter) I have saved 2k$ which could potentially buy a lot of gasoline. The amount that I'll probably end up driving it will make it not matter anyway. The important thing is that we got my wife out of her 18 mpg explorer and into into a 28 mpg Subaru. She drives over 100 miles a day. I don't have to drive to get to work.

I did some major scrubbing, polishing and vacuuming yesterday and today:











You can polish a turd, but it's still a turd. :) The interior is pretty nice and it runs great, so that's all I'm concerned about. My wife isn't as excited about it as I am, she thinks it looks like crap

That front bumper is pretty beat up.
Did it get like that by pushing around or just anybody that you disagreed with?

that hose could be used as a snorkel.

The interior looks clean, get a new front bumper and fix the dent on that truck and your money.

I finally am through a full tank of gas after making a trip down to check out a motorcycle. I have calculated 22 mpg w/ a mix of highway and city driving.

My 02 Crew Cab fully loaded 4x4 diesel gets an easy 19mpg, your 22 sucks.
