cfa or whatever wheels , all of then gutter damged.
tryes so so again , there on they go a round .

Front half of the gear box coated fresh oil , checked oil said add.

aumed and ared said id get back later , nice drive out to se it so on .

price $10,500.00 frim.


Ute two 98 council jobbie local so they say , all neat and tidy joins no real body marks
4.0 5 speed . 225 ks on the clock,. inside was perfect, dodgy central locking thing, had back canupy .
standerd wheels and shit house tyres, engine looked better but the sale guy was dogging it about a test drive ,, etc and so on.

Re: xh utes

we bought a XH ute, nothing flash but does the job.

90,000km's, paintwork a bit scratched, mechanically perfect, 5 speed manual for $8500, so the ones you are looking at are way too much.
