Have my eyes on a 80 4x4. I drive 60 miles a day for work. It runs and drives as is. It will need ball joints and tie rod ends sometime but not right away...cv boots starting to tear....the weber needs rebuilt...but like I said it runs now...are these good trucks? Easy to tinker on etc. Let's hear some input

I daily drove mine for several years. Got great mileage and enjoyed it. Once I did my engine swap it wasn't practical as a daily anymore otherwise I would still be using it daily
very easy to work on obviously and if something breaks mid road trip it's usually a quick fix

Super simple to work on I love that about it. Really basic electrical system and everything is fairly accessible
