Caveat Emptor

If the seller does not even know what he's got I would take anything else he says with an ample portion of salt.

I do not know what model it is, but from the pictures I can clearly see it needs new axles....

I think that you are looking at the picture I posted to show what a 70 Overlander looks like. The pictures posted by fourfauls did not show the axles.

No, I was looking at the first set. I am practicing for when I become an axle distributor... I can see clearly the 70 you showed needs then too. I caution you against towing that 70 anywhere, those axles are shot.

Frank, you have made a good initial attempt, but you need to work on the delivery.

Axles are not visible to make that determination. Fourfauls, if you can see at least 3-4" of tire above the wheel/rim then you are OK.

Fourfauls:

Go to the bathroom and get on your hands and knees and feel the floor around the toilet. Feel the floor under windows, and in closets Also open the back area and feel the floor. I have read about floors becoming rotten because of leaks. I had to replace my whole bathroom floor. I have been working on my 1973 Overlander since last fall. No regrets because it has been a fun project. I have learned a lot about hands on maintenance. It has gone smoothly because of all the knowledgeable people in this forum. One place to start reading is in Forums Replacing the floor and fixing the frame.

It is so cool to have so many knowledgeable people. I have never seen or been a part of such an active forum. I will take everyones thoughts into consideration and post an update and more pictures of the unit I'm looking at. Thanks to everyone!
