Unless your going for a realy early model it will be 5 speed (manual), think they changed early 80s.

Rust and knackered spring must be the obvious things to look out for, and if your going for a 4x4 check that it switches to 4wd ok, also ask when it had the cambelt changed.

Hi Mat

Yes I bought a 1995 diesel 4x4.

Thinking of putting a v8 into it a friend did it to his and said its well worth it

If your 95 diesel is as gutless as mine then a V8 transplant is a good idea! What V8 are you thinking of SBC or Rover?

My other pickup is a Chevrolet 454SS (BBC 7.4L) but this tends to be a bit thirsty (4-10mpg)! :P

The D4D came in 2002 along with them dropping the manual hubs. (No more standing in the mud!)

I am very happy they did not drop manual hubs here, automatics are not that strong and tend to do on/off when stuck on mud.

Anyone lifted trucks here?

My D4D has 3" body lift and 33" BFGs.
