In the process of buying a 94 LMTV. I jumped started it last week with 2 12v batteries put in series. It ran fine, but large air leak in the rear prevented the air to build up to pressure. I went yesterday to repair air valve and replace the batteries. Well the battery store was closed in Saturday due to Covid19. I had a 24v charger with engine start so was hoping for some luck. Fixed the air valve, tore it apart and found the plunger valve was stuck. Using and outside air compressor, the pressure built up and held. But no luck with the jump start. I didn’t have my 2 12v batteries with me(planned on buying new ones, which I found Hawkers for 100 each)
Waiting till next week to get new batteries and hopefully finally drive this beast off the lot where it’s been sitting a few years. Question: where to find seats? It’s missing passenger and middle seat. Or maybe replacements. This truck will be my daily chip tree truck. I am so excited!!

Welcome. I found 2 Prius seats on Craigslist for $60 and installed them. Very little modifications needed.
