    I live in Dover NH near what little coast we have. I saw an 89 jimmy for sale, my buddy just got hos licence and wants a truck. I talked to the owner the problem spots are the back cross brace at the very rear and a crack under the passenger side seat. These exact problems happned on my 88 Jimmy. I had a friend weld plates all over the place and saw the rust out. It is tough now.
    The Jimmy for salehas a 350 FI,4wd,SLE modle. The engine purs like a cat but the engine oil is burnt what problems might this lead to? The owner says the truck has a new fuel tank, fuel pump,and other ods and ends. The interior in great but the odomter has 164,000 on it, the kicker is he is giving it away for1,200$



    what do you guys think? give me everything that you think will need to be looked at fixed or replaced in the next few years or months. Thankf for your help
