    RUST!!! and lots of.


    Look for rust on all the body panels, on the top of the back door, on the bonnet hinges.

    if its been sprayed, check for hidden rust under the paint.

    surface rust on the chassis and springs is not too bad.

    if it has had an engine swap, check if it has been done right, neatly. check electrics.

    see if the 4wd system works well, and that it can steer in 4wd (alot of guys weld the front diff)

    Listen for any scratching or knocking in the mechanical components (g-box, t-case, diffs, engine)

    prices vary widely, due to body condition, engine choices, modifications etc.

    anywhere between 15 and 60k
