Saw this yesterday. Have to say that this is not looking very good. Engine is a rebuilt naturally aspirated diesel that is having major issues. Also appears that the bottom of the truck was rhino lined to cover up the rust holes. Interior is rough and rear end of the truck is covered in rust as is the hood and roof. At best this would be a farm truck if someone could keep it running.

I agree, but I think it's even worse than that.
Does NOT contain the original Turbo Diesel engine, was rebuilt by previous owner with a non-turbo diesel engine. Slow but gets 30-35 mpg.
He said "rebuilt" but that makes absolutely no sense in this context. Surely he meant "replaced". You don't rebuild an engine with a different engine. :(

Agree. I'm still in awe of how some folks fall all over themselves about diesel Troopers. At one time, I spent months looking for a worthy candidate and could not find a decent diesel in the US. Every time that I would find a decent looking one, the engine was either "not running well", or "smokes and shakes", or "needs a priest more than a mechanic" (my personal favorite advertisement). With very, very few exceptions, I have seen nothing but rusted-out, worn-out, ragged-out hunks of crap that are being pawned off as "gems". There are exceptions to every rule, but I can't remember the last time that I saw a decent diesel for sale. The listing that we are currently talking about is pitiful. It sucks. That vehicle is worth nowhere near $3K... even if it had the correct engine. When you see rust on the A-pillars, leading edge of the hood and rear deck near the belt line.... that means that the rust has moved beyond the normal spots to the entire vehicle. The laughable concept of simply applying rhino lining to the entire bottom 1/3 of the truck is basically giving in and saying, "I can't hide all the holes anymore, so I'll cover 'em".

Stay away from this "gem".... lest you end up with a cubic zirconia.

New bare early style 4ZE1 head, $150.
I think it's a AMC, if so should be a quality product.
This head is back up. Maybe the last sale fell through. I'm super tempted to bid... Would be nice have even as a backup.

Wow, Dennis, that's a beauty. Is it OEM to have one painted bumper and one chrome one? Curious.
