I would agree with the $2k - $2,500 tops. The truck is a little rough.
$1500.00 max, I'd have passed on that one. a little rough, needs too much love.
Thanks guys, it helps to know I made the right decision. It was a short wheel base, I forgot to mention it had new tail lights, bumper, and grille.
I'll keep looking, I hope to come across like some of the trucks listed and told about here sometime soon.
In that case, you really screwed up.
Just kidding. The ball in your court is the horrible gas mileage those things get, but they are cool as hell. You could spend hundreds on tie rods, brakes, transmission, u-joints. It's a crap shoot. I have a 92 that I replaced all the tie rod ends on, and the steering is still sloppy as hell.
picked up a nice rustfree 74 shortbed last fall for 2600 so you were right to offer 1500 for that heap and no more!!!
ive got an '83 blazer 4wd...cant hurt it, just keeps going. always loved that body style, they were tough
Even the older ones were as good and as formidable.
I did not want to sell mine, I've had it since my son was born and he is 16 now.
It had never stranded me and was by far the most reliable vehicle I had ever owned.
That one didn't look to bad. Dash, seat, door panels and a dash bezel and you'd be good. How did it drive? I've got a 82 but is it a 2wd and I love the thing. These trucks are becoming more and more popular but the real money is in the 67-72's. Look around but for any truck under $3 grand don't expect too much, at least down here it is that way.
$3500 is high for that truck but i think its a $2500+ truck. these trucks in decent shape are real attention getters and are becoming more and more scarce. nice ones are bringing premium prices around here and will only go up. i believe they will become as popular as any classic in the coming years. i am always wanting to "rescue" every one i see. i have three. here's 2. unmolested 4x4's are hard to come by.
Replace the rag joint intermediate shaft with a U-joint intermediate shaft from an early-to-mid 90's jeep cherokee(not grand cherokee), the slop will all but disappear completely. You'll still have the ever so slightest movement due to gear wear in the box, but the ujoint conversion will kill the majority of the slop.
