Default Looking to buy an 89 Dodge Raider, any thing I should know?

Long story short, I've seen a small handful of these around lately, and I found one I'd like to buy.

It supposedly runs like crap, doesn't knock or anything, shifts fine, and 4x4 works. Anyone have any experience on these? Things I should look for, other than the obvious usual stuff? Common problems to expect?

if it has the 2.6 motor beware of the "wax pellet" choke system. i think that they did away with that setup before 89.

Everyone I talked to said they had problems with the carb.
