well, got my truck a week or so back, '88 4wd 5speed inline 6 4.0L
men, took lookin to find on elike that that someone was willing to part with, I dunno the story on it, but the dealership guys where talking about the former owner like he was dead, to bad, but hey, atleast his truck is in good hands.
jcomanche88, I see what you mean about massive torque, ya, I actually think that it could climb a tree if it could get the traction, my buddies and I had a "start yer vehicle in highest gear" contest outside the shop one day, and I swear it before god, I started the truck in 5th : ) wasn't goin fast or far, and I shudder to think what I did to my clutch disc, but hey, I WON. agaist 2 little rice burners to (89 prelude and '93 cavalier, both modded right out, cavalier got goin in 4th, prelude in 3rd for all those interested, I think the cavalier had the better driver tho)
ya, amazing truck, anyone lookin for a midsized pickup, I highly recommend it, for reference, the box is 44" between the wells, and atleast 50 between the sides, LOTS big enough to fit a sled in, if you have narrow ski's, you can even drop her in between the wells. box's in '89 came 6' and 7' long, but my '88 seems like 7.5, to get a 4x8 sheet of plywood in as bed protector I had to cut 5-6 inches off anyways, so that gives ya an idea.
if anyone has questions about the truck, feel free to email me, I"ll do the best I can to answer them.
