those are OK reese, 1000k is a little high for it. An 87 and newer are better and i've found pathfinders, like mine for that price.

The GVW is actually 5001 so at least it doesn't need airscare

with your weight your gonna have to do the suspension on the truck and quad to be able to handle gear, you, bacon samiches, booze etc.

Remember the one I drove to 42k a couple of times a couple years ago?

It killed me! The ride was terrible.
The worst logging road driver I ever drove and when I pulled my buggy with it (1000 pound load) It needed to be in low range and could barely get fast enough to get second gear.

usually if they change the gvw to 5001 its because the engine runs like ass and they're to cheap to fix it so they just raise the gvw to pass

Yo Reece there's a XJ up here, mint looking, low kms, full load. Stock. Guy was asking like 2200 or so but I think he'll go cheaper, I can take some pics and try to deal the guy down if your interested, its a 91 I think. 4 Door, looks really good.

My first 4X4 was a datsun, had a 2x4 holding the cab up, rust everywhere, and finally an electrical fire caused me to pull off the tires and rims and sell 'em, the rest of the truck went to the wreckers.

just depends on the engine. that probably has a NapZ22 or 24.. i don't like them too much.. he needs a KA24 or a VG (v6)
