Two Door, Turbo Diesel, 5-Speed Manual

Imported from: Benavente, Portugal


Mileage: 60,759 KM / 37,753 MI

Driveline. Truck has the 2.5L VM Turbo Diesel paired with a 5-speed manual transmission and high-low transfer case. Dual battery setup. Odometer reads 60,759 KM / 37,753 MI. Truck has been raised 2” from stock with new shocks and springs. Five new LT235/85R-16 Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac E wrap five new wolf-style tubeless 16” steel wheels. A beefy skid plate has been added to the front. Shift lever is about an inch shorter than stock. Transfer case engages with ease, and the gearbox moves up and down without issue.

Exterior. White paint presents nicely, contrasting against black trim pieces. A custom light bar was fabricated to hold Hella 500FF and Hella Rallye 4000 series auxiliary lamps, while amber Hella 550’s are bolted underneath the front bumper. All the lights are independently controlled via switches mounted next to the emergency brake in the center console. Load bars and a roof-mounted cage are in the top, where the spare wheel is currently residing. We opted to include a fifth full-size spare, knowing it would no longer fit in the OEM location inside the truck to the left. A Bulldog high-lift jack is mounted against the roof rack. Truck has a tow hitch, though it’s still the European spec. Passenger rear fender needs paintwork to match the truck. The chassis and body appear rust free. A Yeti bottle opener is mounted on the rear bumper. Side steps have been added to assist getting in and out of the truck. Even at 6’-1”, I find them to be a more comfortable approach with everyday use.

Interior. Currently configured to seat just two with the stock tan fabric seats in the front. The rear bench seat has been removed, though can convey with the truck if the owner wishes (needs to be reupholstered). Truck does not have air conditioning. The seatbelt on the driver’s side in the rear has been removed to permit the jerry can to be accessed more easily, though the seatbelt and all the associated hardware convey with the truck. Interior is largely stock in the front, with an aftermarket radio and speakers, and the switch panel fabricated from thick-gauge steel to withstand the forces of use. Two LED light bars have been installed inside the truck to illuminate the cargo area, while another two LEDs are installed inside the rear tailgate to illuminate the box at night. A custom cargo box has been installed in the truck, constructed with pine, stained, and covered in exterior-deck weatherproofing. The box has two 40” sliding drawers with large, beefy drawer hardware, with two flip-top compartments behind the front seats. 350W / 110V power converter is hard-wired to the truck to permit charging of standard three-prong devices, as well as a single USB port. Truck conveys with a Yeti cooler, firewood tray, camp axe, camp saw, rachet strap, rope, Gerber multi-tool, jerry can, Bulldog high-lift jack, two bottles of Lost Whiskey’s High Wheat, and four tumblers. Enough to get you started on your first adventure.

Known issues. Rear tailgate weather stripping hangs; we’ve tried to reattach with adhesive but the piece should be replaced. Driver’s lower door card is a slightly different color tan vinyl. Driver’s side door missing trim piece around the door lock (lock still functions). Power window switch missing (e.g., power windows non-op). Radio non-op. Requires 2-3 cycles of the glow plugs to start. Interior center console present and sufficient for the rugged look of the truck, but needs to be rebuilt to be perfect. Rear seat conveys with the truck, though the lower and upper upholstery are different; the hardware for rear seat installation and seatbelts are included with the truck. Rear passenger quarter panel needs paint; it’s white now and looks fine from 5-10’ away, but upon closer inspection it’s visible it needs addressing. Missing two switches (blank delete panels) on OEM switch panel next to driver’s knee. Rear wiper intermittent.

Thanks for looking!
