Ok, i looked at it today.. Birfs where replaced recently, and good to go, The engine runs like a top, Tranny feels fine.. Cloth interior is in good shape.. The paint is a respray, small scratches and dents on it. Rear Brakes Rotors/Calipers/pads are brand new. the guy lives in Castle Pines and has keep it garaged, and whenever something went wrong he fixed it. the drivers window has a bit of an issue going up..

Talked him down to $4000, and gave him some cash to hold onto it! Whatcha guys think? ill post some photos when i get home!, If i dont pick it up, FJBen has first dibs, and anyone elce after that.
This was posted on Craigslist yesterday at 9:00 am and he got 20 e-mails on it in one day!

Sounds like a good deal Trevor.

Expect you will be visiting the 80's section on Mud. You can add factory or ARB lockers at any time

Personal preference on this...

On my '97 LX450 a new window motor ran ~$500 installed . Motor alone was ~$300 IIRC. Might just be the switch, but if it is a 'slow' up deal then it is probably the motor.

Seems reasonable but what do I know...

The slow up down problem is common and is any easy cheap fix. Several threads about this on mud and typically not the motor.

For the window issue. Grease the motor and clean or replace the rubber inserts:

Romer, you da man when it comes to the FAQ and 80 section, Yes i will be on there alot.. Did some reading last night, and you do a top rate job keeping everything organized and neat..

The window goes up fine till it gets 75% of the way up, then it stops, and you have to push it up with your hand, then once it gets past that point it goes all the way, im thinking it has something to do with the stop's or track being off.. (funny story, while i was test driving it i got my fingers stuck in the window, then it would not go back down, and i could not pull my hand out, kinda hurt too )

anyone have a suggestion to getting a $4000 loan? lol Car loan may not work due to the age and milage of the truck.. Personal loan?

Trevor

Do you own your house? Can you get a LOC?

Now you tell me

For me it was a warranty issue so my cost was nothing for a new motor but good to know next time any of them go south. Mine wasn't a slow mover but a no mover issue, other than down.
