Definitely looks the goods but $20k for a 1992 maybe tad steep

If I had seen that I would have brought it in a heart beat,
I love full size dual cabs,
That's his starting price who knows he may except $16,000

I think it is a cover up...would like to see pics of the engine bay....I think someone has access to 4x4 gear...everything is supposed to be brand new...you surely wouldnt build something like that and not have a go with it...other than the cab shut...you could buy that in normal form and add the mods for less than 20,000...providing you are that way inclined...I am probably a bit over fistidious but I look at things like the material on the A pillars and feel that is indicative of an approach with a vehicle...it would drive me nuts looking at that all the time...21 years of under bonnet and running gear not being shown ?...if dealers are proud of what is there then they normally show it off....after all that dribble ...id only be paying for the accessories and a token amount for the vehicle , diesel or not...
I thought bead locks were illegal ?

It would be interesting what thy would say if you Ask them for a roadworthy with the bead locks as they are illegal in every state as far as I'm aware

It's advertised at $25k. That is totally over the top and there's no mention of a turbo which is curious.
I'm a bit fishy on what's going on with all the brand new gear, together with the chop suggests an insurance write-off and if that's what it is, there's no way I'd be paying that money. That sort if money would be reserved for Grandpas minter that's towed a van for 100,000km.......with a turbo.
