That trucks about 25 minutes from me but the price is too scary for me to get any closer.

I never understood why they built those with long beds. They have no power. What are you going to put in the bed where you need a long bed? Should have been absolute base models, with manual steering and brakes.

My neighbor has an 88 standard cab long bed that he pretty much only ever has 3 or 4 push mowers and a gas can in. Whole load in the bed weighs less than the difference in weight between his 2wd long bed and my 4x4 super cab, but I'd be hard pressed to get those mowers in mine end to end like he has them.

On a side note, i just dont think i could bring myself to buy a 1st gen without a 2.9. Just wouldnt feel right.

I could but only if it was a 2.3 diesel, or something already 4.0 or 5.0 swapped.
