This is a high mileage unit that has wear and tear throughout but still runs and drives well with all flat-bed options working as designed. The body shows some damage as noted in pics but still looks decent from a distance. There are many scratches and the clear-coat is peeling in many places. There surface rust to areas of the body, underside and rear bed. I saw no major rot and structurally the unit is good. The engine was cold when I first arrived witch is a good thing. The engine started right up with no issues. There was a sound coming from the engine that appeared to be a belt squeaking. When I got the hood open to inspect it had stopped and did not happen again. Belts are older and should be replaced. The test drive went well with the engine performing as designed. The transmission shifted well. The steering was a little loose. The suspension showed no issues. The ABS light is on and will need further diagnosis. The front tires are bald but rear are ok. The windshield is cracked and needs replacement. Lots of wear to the interior from normal use. The A/C blows cold but not as cold as it should. The rear bed and hydraulics worked well. No hydraulic leaks were seen. Overall a nice unit for the money. It runs and drives but needs a little work. A good starter. See below and pics for more info.
