    It's a 1999 with manual hubs, 5 speed and a V6 Yes I see no locker on the rear but the front end is worth the trade off in my opinion. I have a 1999 also. Manual hubs are better

    The 04 has more miles and its more expensive. The 99 has lower miles and in great condition, no it may not have a locker but it hasnt been lifted or modded which can be a good thing. Save the money that you would put in the 04 and put it in the 99!
