I'm in the market for a larger pickup, having an S-10.
I've been looking for over a month and think I have found a
166,000 miles, tight, clean, stock. No rips in seat, no
major body defects, doors don't drop when you open them,
appears to be garaged. One owner, seems like an honest
guy. Will need tires soon, priced 6 plys today, 4 @ $700.
Owner says he loaned the truck to a nephew for almost 2
years, and the nephew had to put a transmission in it @
120,000. He also says he replaced the heater core for some
reason. I know he was honest about that, because when I
was underneath it, I found a page out of a repair manual
stuffed near the shock having to do with this. He says no
other major repairs.
Anyway, I was just looking for advice on purchasing this
year, from you pros. Anything I might should know about
the particular year and model. My dad had an 88 half ton,
I think it was a 350, but it seemed to have a lot more zip
than this truck. It was also a 2x though too...maybe lighter?
Thanks for any info, thanks for reading.
