The truck was built for off-road adventures, it will only go 40-45MPH on straight due to gearing and the small diesel.

Actual mileage is unknown due to the stuck odometer but when I purchased it I was told it had around 32K mi. Engine runs great, no fluid or oil leaks. All listed parts are about 6 month old with less than 50 miles on them. I ran trails with it here in CO and UT, always trailered it to the trail head. The body has some rust spots so it is not perfect as far as that goes, the frame has no rust. It is mechanically solid and reliable never let me down!! If you serious about purchasing it, I suggest you to come and see it in person! I will not sell unless there is an inspection being done and customer is happy!
