This car was more than just a possesion to me, It's all I ever talked about read about and thought about. I owned it for 2 years and did many mods and maintenance, bigger turbo, 3" exhaust from downpipe back, ecu chips, waxed it every week.

I need a new welder, I've finally decided to retire my $80 Chicago Electric flux core unit. The wire feed system is starting to fail, and I can't turn down the heat enough to do anything thin gauge. Not to mention the general messy welds of a flux core system.
I'm looking for mig, or specifically a flux core kit I can convert to mig. It'll probably end up just being 110v, I'll pick up something more powerful when I need it.
Everyone around here uses Lincoln Electric. I was trained on a full range of Lincoln Electric welders at school, and I'm more then happy with them. They are also the most expensive I've found.
I'm looking for a good quality unit that will preferably last me 20 years. I know I could get what I want with Lincoln electric, but I'm wondering if there are other brands out there.
What brand do you use, how often do you use it (what's your skill level), and would you recommend it?

Someone on my local offroad forum is selling his current DD. Here is the link.
Now the main reason i'm interested in it is because it was the very last year of the toyota Straight axle, and the very first year of the god-tier 22re EFI engine. It seems like a decent truck, it has the same KM's as my '89 4runner, and it's a 5speed, but the only thing that concerns me is the frame rust.
Now he says it's been patched, but it might be starting to rust out on the top of the frame, but he doesnt know for sure, because the box hasnt been pulled.
Is frame rust very hard to fix? This pickup would make an awesome wheeling rig build if i can get it for the right price
