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. Major wear to the driver's seat. There is a seat cover over the seat. The passenger seat shows some wear but not as bad as the driver's seat. The seat belts are dirty. The inner door panels show signs of wear and tear. The dash is dirty with some wear. The A/C blew cold but not as cold as it should. More diagnosis needed. The flooring shows wear. There was a faint smell of cigarette smoke but not bad. The vehicle was so dirty inside that I could not tell if it had been smoked in. The headliner is dirty. Most of the interior shows wear and tear that would be considered normal for the high mileage. The sunvisors are dirty with some wear. The engine was cold when I first arrived which 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. There was some play felt in the steering wheel due to worn steering components. More diagnosis necessary. The vehicle wanders while driving on the road. This is due to loose steering components. The suspension showed no issues. The ABS light is on and will need further diagnosis. At this time the ABS system is not working. The front tires are bald but the rear are ok. The windshield is cracked and needs replacement. There is lots of wear on 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.
