selling canadian SUV in Costa Rica


I am a german panamerica traveller. I bought a 1993 GMC Jimmy 4WD SUV in Kelowna, B.C. So it comes with "beautiful british columbia" plates. I love this truck and planned actually to ship it to Columbia. My problem is that I have just 4.5 month left for Southamerica. The distances are to huge for a sole driver I recognized the last 6 month. Right now I am in Costa Rica and driving around through this amazing country the entire month. So I am thinking about selling it end of July in Costa Rica to some guys who will drive it back to Canada. I put a lot of money for maintanance  and invest in many new parts, before I left the US.  The temporal import permission for Costa Rica is valid for the next 3 month.
Sale for 2300 USD or best offer. email me for more details     bkloer(at)

Some informations:
1993 GMC Jimmy SLE 4 doors
vortec 4.3L engine V6 (298000 km = 175000 miles)
automatic transmission
goodyear wrangler rt/s 235/75R15 alloy wheels
gas = hwy 10,5l/100km or 22,5mpg; city 14l/100km or 17mpg
practical no rust.
engine and transmission run very smooth and are in good conditions.

New parts:
Water pump + hoses
Radiator + hoses
Battery + alternator

tensioner + belt
changed all liquids
and some other minor details.

The ABS is off. It works to 99% but the model has some known problems so I shut it down.
A/C Generator is noisy. I don't need it, so disconnect it.
The rightside front door can only be opened from inside. Cheap to fix it. But I don't need it.
