Not great, not awful. Lots of poor fixes and it would need some effort to make it road worthy (safely). Probably couldn’t talk him down much but even at a 1000.00 discount it would be a project. Probably can’t get the wife on board but I’ll ask tonight.
Cool thing is the front clip is from an actual gladiator.

Is it a wagoneer front end? The fenders don’t have widetrack flares - maybe just the angle.

No, good catch. I’m pretty sure it came off of a Wagoneer. Seller got it from a drunk farmer who smashed into his barn. Lots of hack stuff and neglect. Gas tank was rusted so someone put one behind the seat like old ford trucks. Radiator was replaced but was to talk so they cut the grille support. Brake lines are all rotted, exhaust leaks everywhere, tires are downright scary. Drivers floorboard is a gaping hole with a bad patch job. Bed isn’t too bad though.
I like it but it’s way overpriced imho
