Thanks for the advise guys .took it for a spin runs good. 6"lift 33s ,on board air, rear locker ,2 tops,4 doors ,Shifting smooth ,Solid ride. There is a little oil leak from the valve cover but is clean underneath.The motor sounds good, no ticks. air filter is clean so no blow by. Thinking I might drop a offer on it ,try to get him to come down . Like I said just looking for a project, something to build up for a trail rig
