Just bought a 92 Laredo with about 215k miles (probably more since the odometer isn't moving). Still, no rust and she feels really strong. Goes into 4wd high and low with no problem. Does have some popping in the front suspension. I payed 1000 cash. What do y'all think?

I'm looking to buy a 3" lift if anyone is in the Atlanta area and has a good deal. Also wanting to run 31x10.5x15 if someone has rims and tires they need to get rid of. Help a newbie out!

Yes, I'm 98% sure that's a 8.25.

If your good with the price than that is all that really matters, I am looking at a 97 with 190,000 4.5 inch lift with 33s runs and drives perfect for $900 for my son right now. So it is really what your comfortable with and the market your in.

And yes that is a 8.25.
Congrats, and welcome to the club

Thanks! I appreciate the feedback. In my market it's tough to find a 4x4 that's not way over priced. I went with '92 because I don't have to deal with GA emissions

Thanks! I put them on while everything else was off. Once I upgraded my air wrench the bolts came loose easily. They were pretty stubborn. Good luck!
