So I found a potential new toy

I was looking on Craigslist for a new toy (cars, computers, electronics, bikes...) and I cam across this interesting truck. http://akroncanton.craigslist.org/cto/872478782.html I figure the suspension upgrades alone have to be worth that. I doubt that it would be a street vehicle ever again, but it would be a blast out at Jeep Skool. What do you all think?

Put a windshield in it and your done. I would grab it but would try to negotiate a little.

Sure a windshield can go back in. May take a little time to fit it in though. I worked in a bodyshop for a while and I was amazed on what can be done.

Ya, you could just get another cab. I dont think I would put my everyday truck body on that truck, I know it has 70,000 miles on the engine, but it looks like it was a damn hard 70,000 miles.

True, I had a buddy that rolled his cherokee, we used a high lift jack to jack the roof back up and some hammer work. Damn windshield fit perfect and still has not leaked.

It says that the truck has the super runner steering system, in the pic it doesnt look like it to me, looks like the factory steering set up to me...It is hard to see though.

I am declaring my intentions. In light of having no good place to store it and the rest of the toys, I release this to anyone here that wants it. I did see it for sale ~1 month ago so he must not have had any takers then. Might be able to get it for $1500. People become funny when you show up and flash cash at them.
