the only problem ours had was the snapping of studs but that could have been turbo heat related, as yours is not a turbo it may be fine, also this is only one, isuzu are known to make a reliable truck, any jap trucks are usually ok as long as they are maintained properly, how many k's has it done?

400,000 on it .

Oh realy thats a good sign then. thanks man.

Thats pretty low for something that age, ours hasnt been driven for a few years and has around 800,000 on it, we also have an old international that is about to clock over a million and in the 7 yrs i've been there the only major works is a head gasket and gearbox.

Go for it mate, my dad started out unsure like you, now he always tells me 'if you don't take the dive, then you never start swimming.'

You'll start with one, you can work for yourself as a sub to get cash flow and it's like anything, you keep putting energy into something and it keeps growing.
