All, I am having to sell my diesel due to financial issues. I am located in Charles Town, WV

Good Things:
  • New General UHP tires

  • New front struts (KYB Ex)
  • Two spare wheels with Michelin Alpine's
  • Headlight wipers work!
  • Rebuild drivers side seat controller

  • It has started every day with no issues since I have owned it.
  • The fuel return lines on the injectors have been replaced
  • BOTH fuel filters have been replaced

  • Cooling fans (OE) both mechanical and electrical are working fine
  • Exhaust has had no issues

Not so good things:
  • AC does not work

Smile Just took a trip.. ran great!

I just took a trip in the car from Charles Town, WV to Roanoke Rapids, NC to Goochland, VA and back home to Charles Town, WV. Only used $40.00 (a bit more than 10 gallons) for the whole trip. It ran great. If I did not need the money I would not sell this car. I just hope it finds a new owner that will finish the restoration I have started.
