D90 Help

Hey Guys,
I am very close to purchasing a 95 D90, and I am not very mechanically inclined. I have owned a 110 300TDi and an 05 RR HSE. I am not sure that this is worth asking, but If i were to post some photos of the under carriage of the truck I am looking at- do you think you guys could let me know what you think? I know its hard with just pics, but I know the rest of the vehicle is in good shape, and I feel the asking price is right. I value your opinions and thought it might be an easy way to see if you guys notice anything unusual or "major"

Thanks in advance

Brenter

Not bad needs a steam cleaning and a new exhaust.

Thumbs up

From the pix I conclude:
1) Has L/R oil cooler lines...it's only a matter of time...upgrade those.
2) No starter heat shield. Not good being so close to the CAT
3) Rust dosen't look to bad. Got any pix on the rear x-member?

What about the doors (corrosion)?
Is the body straight?
If you buy it, ditch the Fram oil filters and go Genuine L/R.

Good luck...

Thanks Guys-
Body is in good shape, and the doors are new. (2009 take offs)
I think overall its a good truck, And as far as pricing is much more reasonable than most I've been looking at. The guy owns 2 dscos and a 109 as well, so it has been apparently maintained well.
