Default Good running 4X4

I am looking for something around the $500 range. Something with a diesel around $1000 would be even better.

AMC Eagle, Jeep, Ranger, S-10......

A diesel around the $500 range? and 4x4?... you might be able to find a 4x4 closer to $1000 but still under. But a diesel probably won't happen. sorry.

Hi Ben,

I'm guessing you're going to have to do one of a few things:
  1. Increase your budget
  2. Lose the 4WD and/or diesel requirement
  3. Get a vehicle in that price range that runs, but needs work

If you're looking for a good daily driver, find yourself a big, heavy, good running American made car. A lot of people are ditching them cheap in favor of more fuel-efficient cars. My "winter beater" is a '93 Buick Roadmaster (crunched in the drivers side) that has about ZERO style, but runs great (350TBI), gets 22mpg, and carries/tows anything I need it to. I paid $750 for it, and put about $600 more into tires & tie rod work. It's VERY reliable.

On the 4x4 topic, I got a REALLY good deal a while back on an '80 turbo diesel Scout Traveler (rare). I paid $1000 for it, but had another $275 into getting it back from Wisconsin (ferry trip). Even so, it would have needed work to make it daily-driver friendly.

What's your primary goal for this truck? Daily driver? Weekend toy? That may help people with their suggestions.

Good luck.

Craig

Default cheap 4x4

How about a late 70's Jeep J-20 truck with dump bed and snow plow. I will try and find the title to get exact year. Its not a diesel but is 4x4 and has a 360 V-8 that runs decent. Body is rough but it is close to your price range. $650

Sorry guys...I'm not very specific....mostly retarded. I'm looking for a 4X4 around the $500 range, or a Diesel but not around the $500 range b/c that would be near impossible. Hoping for around $1000. Its just gotta run/drive
