New here today. Name is Jeff and I have a 1988 D21 4x4.
I bought it for $800 bucks, it is a one owner truck and was a farm truck.
Originally I just needed a 4x4 besides borrowing my wife's Subaru. Now I just can't quit messing with it. I wanted one of these when I graduated high school. I used to drive by the nissan dealer and eyeball them. Now 30 yrs. later I have one.
I have spent way over the $800 now. I bought a parts truck, replaced the carpet with new vinyl floor, seat, instrument cluster, front axles, shocks, brakes, grilles in the dash, stereo, seat.... I know there's more but you should get the idea.
Just looking for a place to get some other peoples thoughts and experiences when working on these.
Thanks, Jeff

Welcome Jeff
Got my truck in August and have done more work on it than alll the other cars I have ever owned. Maybe it’s the relative ease of working on it or having a great site like this for advice. At any rate you found a great truck and a great place to share.
