    Sounds like a decent truck, I had a 93 just like it and it was bullet proof. I love the 22re motor, its tough as nails and very gas friendly, not powerful but still a good engine. If the motor was rebuilt at that low mileage it probably over-heated, make sure the head was pressure tested for warping and that the timing chain tension is correct. Make sure the temp gauge stays on the lower half, should be around 1/4 of the way up, thats where it should run on that year truck. Body rust not really a big deal just check the frame under the bed...
