    Maybe this is a unicorn but I am looking for a truck that doesn't have to be beautiful but is mechanically strong. Ok to have faded paint with dings and scratches but no rust or major body damage.

    I don't mind an interior that is aged but I have seen a few that are missing panels and have other plastic that is disintegrating and that's not cool.

    Must have:
    - 4 doors
    - 4x4
    - manual transmission [5 speed preferred]
    - no rust
    - mechanically sound - maintenance is fine but I am not looking for a project truck

    Prefer
    - IDI turbo but NA would still be interesting
    - gasser in good shape also interesting.
    - Air conditioning

    Deal killers
    - Blow by or other issues needing engine rebuild
    - Too much work needed

    Does this mean the Seattle truck was not so good ? I was looking forward to seeing pics of it .

    No, flight was cancelled due to weather. Going to try to look at it in a few weeks now.

    I still want to make confirm that t's a good truck and so have searched Craigslist far and wide, haven't found anything better so that's encouraging. Wanted to see if anybody here had something i need to consider.

    Dozens of beautiful options on Craigslist in Texas. Rust free trucks that never seen snow in their life

    I look at Texas CL and Fbook marketplace a few times a week. Still cannot find anything...

    Anybody know of anything? IDIT, 4x4, CCLB, ZF5, I'll pay good cash for good condition.
