Congrats !!! THey are good trucks . Does it have A/C ?? is it a 4x4 ? 2 Dr. ? I have a 2001 and ya , lots of work !! but i love these trucks . V6 ?? 4.0 ?? etc . Is the frame intact ?? If it is a 4x4 ,, always check underneath , make sure the frame is solid and still there , many previous owners like to sink them and then never do under body maintenance . I found river sand and fishing line on top of the frame in mine . Anyway , welcome to the forum .
