    Time to build another mini truck :) ok soo outstanding customer of mine got this pickup at auction, used it to get parts and the water pump started leaking . Customer tore down the front end and put it in the bed (idk why took the front end off to change a water pump) and lost interest in it ... I traded 2 rechargeable snap-on flashlights for it :D time to build another cheap mini to beat around on and do my nasty hoodrat shit to :D :D :D 1995 Nissan D21 Hardbody 5-Speed

    Why not get it running for the least amount possible and sell it for $1,500? Put that money towards your honda instead of collecting more junk that requires insurance, gas, maintenance, etc.

    also the lowing/wheels part is easy and CHEAP as FUCK ... 4x4 rear leafs at a junk yard (86-99) , 6 inches of blocks in the back, drop spindles up front ($100) and index the torsions , take front and rear bump stops out ... BOOM you literally have a laid TF out pickup for 110% under $200 investment, ok cool put a $40 water pump on it and misc tune up etc, still cheap into it , go to any of the like 4 4x4 truck shops in my route and score a set of 90s 6 lug z71 wheels ... boom minitruck with $500ish invested a easy $1500-1700 truck in import scene and would also be tenfold easier of a sale than realistically a $700-900 truck private party here in ga as is just put together and running, it give me something cheap and productive to do that I can literally do in my garage unlike fabrication of box mounts etc in my garage like the civic is getting dropped off for or body work that I dont want my learning experience to be on a 1 of 500 Jackon Racing Kit.. ive owned quite a few of these trucks already and my very first vehicle was a 91 4x4 hardbody , fuck it we will see what happens

    I had one of these in maroon, can't remember the year. 2wd, stupid low miles.
    Blew a torsion bar, got it cheap. Drove it for a year or 2, factory AC worked awesome. Frame got shifty so I flipped it.
    Great beat around truck.

    turned bottom end over with 1/2 inch drive ratchet to tdc
    dropped distributor back in at tdc
    2 good KSHHHHHCCCHHHH of starting fluid in the throttle body and hooked the jump box up
    VROOM truck without hesitation started up effortless after first rotation of the engine

    Agreed. The body is pretty straight. If you get all the parts on it, sand it down, and primer/wrap it for $100 you'd have a decent flip. Maybe you can pair it with your old jet ski and sell them both for $4k. lol
