My first 4x4 SUV was an '89 Pathfinder two-door that I bought off e-bay for $4000. Pretty basic (no AC!). Had a ton of miles on it. Drove it from Kansas to San Diego...or at least most of the way. Transmission croaked in the middle of the desert. Put another trans in it at a shop in Oceanside, Ca. and kept it another year or so. Serious piece of crap but I loved it anyways! Note: the picture is not the actual one I owned (mine had more rust!)...I don't seem to have any picture evidence of it anymore.
