Default Extended Cab Project

What's up y'all. As the title says, I'm searching for another x-cab now finally. The older the better. Don't have thousands to spend so really needing help to find "The One". I'm striking out around my area so if anybody has a lead around the Midwest or south of Illinois for one, chime in please. Preferably 4-cyl, Nap-Z or KA, doesn't matter. Thanks y'all and hope to be finding one soon to start tearing into!

Put 2 grand in your pocket, come to Texas, and take your pick.

If you want to stick around your area, this is the only one I found:

Thanks for the leads! That one in chambana is pretty beat up. I've bought a couple in better condition for less. I'm not being picky but I know they are out there. Haven't looked at your Texas listing yet but about to just to see.

I'm in the process of helping my daily out a lil so trying not to spend alot. Thanks again!

Find one of the Craigslist regions you are interested in, and just use "Nissan" as the search term. That's because a lot of people don't now what to call them. Some call them Hardbodys, some say "truck", some "pick-up", and some put "Nissan extended cab". It's too much of a crap shoot.

Once you get to the results, filter them by only looking at the years you are interested in. I put in 1997, so I saw a few 720 trucks from 1984, a few Skylines, and 300s, but it isn't many to weed through.

Yep. That's what I do. I use d21, hardbody, truck, pickup and frontier. Looks like I may be going to Texas after the new year. Some nice ones to choose from compared to what's around here. Hard to find a decent one in my neck of the woods anymore.

Yeah, I don't think many vehicles were built to withstand the salt that Northern states use.
