Ha I'm the opposite. I don't really care about mechanical issues but I wouldn't pay a dime for that thing if it was rusty. I'm so done with dealing with rust.

I too would rather have a clean, minimal rust truck that needs a little mechanical work, than a rusted out anything. I look for trucks like this..... usually I buy them with bad trans, bad rear end, need tuneup or water pump, etc that the old owner "doesn't want to be bothered with". Where were you located again? I like 0 monthly payments, and I like older trucks. I work on newer trucks all the time at work. (mostly Fords, I'm a fleet mechanic for the State) The more newer vehicles I see, the less I like them.

To answer a couple questions the truck has 126,000 miles and I live in Solomon Ks. I bought a new radiator, thermostat, because I was considering on keeping it if I got the ccourage to to change the timing chain, I'd of course want to replace the water pump as well. I'd sell it to any of my fellow forum members for $1,000 or a trade across for something, that runs better than my Dakota at the moment. Thanks everyone.

The worst thing for me to deal with is rust on the body. I would pay $1500 for a rust free vehicle so all I had to fix was mechanical issues.
