    also hes getting a new bumper and billet grille.

    first off wat do u think....? up here theres not too many i can look at with no rust.

    Also its to be expected that the steering wheel will be looser than my 96 obs?
    I think it had a little play in the wheel too is that to be expected?

    umm and since it 2 yr old gas it smelled bad

    And another the guy has cut off the catalytic converter and he put a turbo muffler with no turndown or nothing would it be wise to run a tailpipe? to prevent fumes from entering the cab

    thanks I hope to get this one

    that sounds like a good deal to me. i got an 88 with no rust and 140,000 miles for $5,000. A little play in the steering is normal so nothing to worry about there. you may smell a little exhaust while driving with the back window down and while sitting at a light so you may want to run pipes out the sides. the only thing i was thinking about is if it has been wrecked because of the front bumper and grille. truck looks good and sounds like a good deal to me.

    have you fired it up yet? If the motor has been sitting that long i would expect it to have some problems... also might want to prime it before you start it if he didn't start it up every month.

    for some reason on the shifter there is no needle to tell me if im drive or wat i just guessed
