Did anyone notice the wear on the inside front of the passenger front tire, and what looks like an extra leaf spring spacer on the passenger side front? I've also never seen rear shock mounts that are not welded, but bolted on with Ubolts, is that normal?

Says its a ujoint 4X4....?? That looks more like a hodgepodge of parts thrown on and a laundry list of pretty involved issues-transmission, torque converter, injectors?/ICM, oil pan.....Id stay well away from this thing.

I agree, the closer I look at the photos the worse it gets. The exhaust is held up with a hose clamp through the frame, What looks like a little piece of 1/4 in threaded rod is holding the battery's in place, poor wiring practices, leaking rear diff, miss matched tires, what looks like a broken rear exhaust mount,high miles, and an absent owner over seas. Never the less, for someone looking for a project this could be a good beginning at the right price. Just expect to invest a lot of money to get it right.

Garage
"The oil pan is rusted and has a slow leak, but is very workable. It is covered with JB weld. The need to repair this is not imminent." - The logic in that statement would make me question the approach to everything that has been done on this rig.
The real value must be "Oil pan is about 1700"...guessing that includes a life time supply of JB Weld ???
