If anyone is looking for an inexpensive tow vehicle for their boat, I have one for sale. Its in Raleigh, NC but I will deliver pretty much anywhere on the Bay for the asking price.

1994, 4x4, 5.7 TBI, 4l80e trans, 4.10 gears. 250k miles. Approx 50k miles on the transmission and probably 15k on a top end rebuild (heads)

Engine runs very smooth, transmission has nice firm shifts. Does not smoke. No check engine light. Heat/AC works incl the rear heat/ac. AC compressor is new.. Front blower motor makes a bunch of racket, I have a replacement somewhere. The front air diverter doors occasionally stick in the defrost position (maybe one in every 5 starts) but usually goes back to normal within a few mins of driving. Cruise control works. Radio works.

I bought it 2 years ago and have put about 10k miles on it. Below is a list of stuff I did/replaced. It was running fine when I bought it, but I did a lot of preventative maintenance and some upgrades. The engine really purrs now and the steering/suspension is tight.

Transfer Case, Diffs all fluids changed
MSD Coil, new plugs/wires, cap/rotor
New high flow cat, muffler, exhaust and I converted it to a 3 wire o2 sensor.
New tires (265's, Cooper Discoverer HT's)
Alternator, Water Pump, Power Steering pump replaced
New Shocks
New steering pitman arm, idler arm, tie rod ends and i had it aligned
New TBI injectors
Tow/Haul 87 octane tune from TBIchips.com (this actually worked very well, noticeable increase in HP)
New Fan clutch
New Thermostat

The best picture I could find is attached. The exterior is good, nothing but very minor (shopping cart) dents and the paint is fine except for two small spots where its a little faded. It actually takes a coat of wax pretty well.

Interior is overall in good shape except for the headliner above the passenger seat. The rest of the headliner is fine, this section could be cut out and re-glued.

The truck is reliable, drives great (steering is tight, suspension is good) and I have done 7-8 round trips to the coast with it in the last 6 months. The truck has factory transmission, power steering cooler and hydroboost brakes. Trailer hitch, trailer brake controller... the truck is rated to tow 10,000 lbs.
