I think I am going to shoot for $1500. Looks like they have reposted it a couple of times on CL. I took at look at it, but haven't driven it yet. Just looking to buy a decent running truck for under $3k. Nothing fancy. I'm also looking at a 98 Ram 4x4 for $3k, but the seller seems a little too anxious to get rid of it. Kind of worrying considering what happened a week ago.
I would love to find one in my price range, but they are over priced. Anything with a 22R usually gets $500 more tacked on at least, If it is fuel injected, up that to $1k.Have to agree that the 22R-E is a tough engine. The fact that it has a double number should be a give away that the R-engine has been around for quite some time (dates back to the late '50s) and has countless improvements over the years.
