Bought this for $2500. It needed the gas tank support and a new fill tube for the tank right away. Also had frame rot on the passenger side in back due to a mouse nest. Welded up some 3/16 plate to fix the rot and made a new bracket for the gas tank out of 1/4" angle for the tank support. Track bar was rusted loose on one side and cut it out after reading about it here.

Mods I have done so far are the repairs above. Changed the rear bumper trailer hitch from just a ball to a 2" receiver so I can use my receiver carrier for deer hunting and trips. This only cost me $12 using a 2" adapter tube from Walmart. Made a single gun rack that attaches between the roll cage in the overhead with tension and used ATV gun holders on it. This was only $32 for the ATV gun holders, I had all of the steel in my shop.
