Bought this beauty today - 1994 4x4

So I found this in the local classifieds and thought id check it out, went there and offered the guy half of his asking price and a case of beer and he took it!.

Its a 94 ext cab
V6 3.0
288 km (180xxx miles)
Runs and drives great
no rust

Only problems are the power steering pump leaks and the valve covers leak a bit. Interiors not too bad, could use a shampoo.

I figured id buy it, fix it up a bit, put it on 33's and rip it around for the winter and save my good truck from the salt.

What do you guys think?

hahah, i think if i was going to go with a 3.4 i would just buy a new truck (they are super rare and expensive up here), havin a little 22re would be sweet for wheeling too.
