Hello folks, I have not been on the forum to much since many years back but i am in a bind and I need to sell my well built 86 runner with a ton of killer low mile Marlin (and other) parts, ASAP.

Seeing that I am knew the forum I know I need to post a few times before I can post up in the for sale section but I am in a bind and I need to get word out about my runner for sale ASAP.

Other important info: Motor and tranny/transfer cases have less than 7,000 miles on them, and has always had synthetic oil run in it as well as K&N oil filters, as well as the parts are in pristine condition. This motor is absolutely overkill and runs like a champion! The runner has only been wheeled 5 times and trailered to the trail every time. If I haven't said it i'll say it again PRISTINE CONDITION!!!

Serious offers only, VERY low miles on rig and parts. I have had many offers but I am reposting again, please refrain from heckling me about the price, many wheelers out there for sale are whooped on, and have little to no parts list such as this one! There is a lot more invested into this rig than you can imagine!

Asking $12, 000 obo
