So I test drove it.. Does feel smoother than my TJ due to the wheelbase and the 6cyl is
The seating in the thing is deff odd/strange, I was right sunk in. But that's nothing really and a few washers can't fix.
But the thing had quite a few issues that my quick glance missed on Friday..
1) severe rust on passenger floor, the carpet was wet and we've had nothing but 30+ Celsius weather this last week. It was quite bad.
2) gear 1, 2 and 3 I could hear some sort of POP as I shifted into it. The clutch worked fine but the shifter was just weird and very stiff.
3)The 4wd shifter was also messed, pulling it back into 4hi it wouldn't activate at the stop mark when you pull it all the way back you have to push it some forward in order to activate even then it seemed fidgety. I couldn't even get it into 4low to test lockers as the shifter wouldnt go to the side at all, I used my whole body to push it over to pull it back and just no go at all..
4) some odd clunks/taps on bumps and braking, believe the trans mount is gone. Seemed like the seal behind the oil pan and trans was leaking too. Did not sound very good. Underneath was just too rusted for my liking.
This made my 97 look like new vehicle.
