Yes no dents or body damage, light on rust as well.

Seats were in great shape. Dash is a loss and so is the floor mats. Other than that I have not started it yet but it looks good as it came with maint records from a civ repair shop.

It had been in Idaho with the Forest Service when it left Military service. (Dry Part of Idaho) I was told.

I haven't dug too deep into the history. In 2003 it had batteries from NAPA.

Not sure what was going on with the front tow hitch. Maybe they pulled something?

It didn't look all that safe as a way to tow it but never know.

I just changed out the batteries and it started right up no problems all the fluids are good transmission fluids clean oil is clean. I'll be changing the oil of course but no issues started right up its good runner. It has 51,000 miles on the odometer.

It also came with some extra goodies in the back snow chains jumper cables a shovel a pickaxe a hard hat and a couple other small things came with the Jack spare tire the roadside reflectors.

So far I couldn't be happier

With some TLC and CUCV TMs, you'll enjoy that ride for years. Congrats, and may your future travels never require any of your extra goodies left in the back.

Looks pretty solid. Congrats on you truck. The receiver in the front could be for a receiver mount winch (I've got one on mine) or some other accessory or carrier.

Just changed the oil and some lube. The rear differential has a leak and the front axle. Heading down to Napa for a few seals. Went to the DMV no troubles other than what the MSRP was.

Other than some of the usual surface rust looks clean on the underbody.

Yep thinking it is the winch mount as well. Great call thank you.

Wasn't this the PG 13 section?

Thanks for the good catch wasn't watch my spell checker!
