So here are some better pictures:

Paint needs a little touch up!

Body damage on the passenger side:

Tailgate and rear bumper are in pretty good shape.

The trash was included for free! It has a nice bedliner though.

Can't decide if I want to keep these rims or use a spare set of TJ Canyons I have. Need to decide soon so I can get the Armortacs mounted.

The interior is in excellent shape for a 22 year old truck.

The engine is in pretty good shape too. I already replaced the water bottle with one from the parts comanche.

I actually have them on there right now until I get the tires switched over. There was no way I was gonna drive it around with those scary looking mismatches. They look okay, not really my style though.

Does the bench seat sag like hell on the drivers side? On my brothers old MJ it sagged until you hit the floor.

Nope, it sits great. The whole bench seat is in great shape, no rips or anything.

I'm thinking of replacing the bench seat with bucket seats and a center console from a Cherokee. I need cup holders!

I had one exactly like the black 88 when I was a kid. Learned how to jump hills with that truck. Also learned how to not jump the hills with that truck. Ahh the memories.
