    I have had this burb for nearly 9 months, I runs like a horse. I have to sell it because I am moving back to Tahoe in a couple of months and just don't have time for this project. I started building just doing routine maintenance, a paint job to get rid of some rust. I also threw some bumpers on it and a 4" lift that isn't finished yet.

    I picked it up from a mercedes collector that had no use for it, he had 25 old diesel mercedes in his yard :eek1:

    I originally intended to use it as a back up parts truck, or build a second wheeler for my friends. Turns out I didn't want to part the sucker, I dont have the time as it is to finish my Jimmy before I move.

    Problems:
    Rust, it has a lot, mostly body problems
    it has mismatching gears, 4.11 in the front and 3.73 in the rear.
    Interior carpet needs to be replaced, no 3rd row seat.

    registered diesel, now has dependable 350 with hooker headers and edelbrock carb
    Th-400, has had recent rebuild, shifts smooth and strong
    NP 208
    New Battery, good starter, fires right up
    14bff
    3/4 d44
    31" retreaded tires, crap
    front and rear bumpers
    4" lift

    other than that it's pretty much stock. Runs great I used it for the last few months on the freeway everday.

    Anything else....

    Oh ya I need to sell this ASAP, I mean yesterday.

    I am located in Eureka, CA 95501
    Pretty isolated but this truck is definately worth the parts or a sweet project.


    $1500





    Thanks,
