Question Buying guide for used gen 3 SWB 3.2 DID

Looking at buying 2000ish SWB 3.2DID, auto.

What are the things I need to look out for?
Are there any areas prone to rust?
How reliable are the 3.2 diesels?
Recommended tries?

not much point asking here I am afraid..... SWB gen 3's are like rocking horse poops In Aussie, best we can likely answer is all the things to look for in a LWB

Noisy brake booster (some have issues)
fuel pump - early ones have been known to play up

rear CV's and shafts - have a habbit of popping out, but there is a fix for them
anything else that you would likely look fo in a regular 4x4 - run through all its gear box and transfer case options, make sure there are no flasshing lights on all the time etc
1994 NJ 3.0 now with a 2000NL 3.5 engine and driveline, 2.5 catback, 32" MT Deegan 38's, 1" body lift, front diff drop with front tension rods indexed and cranked an 3", 3" on the rear coils
*** retired to the big wrecking yard in the sky***
1998 NL blisterside, 285.75.16's on -22 rims 3" suspension lift, stealth winch install, custom front control arms, NJ GLS flares and some camping gear in the back

.... and 1990 Nissan Z32 300zx for on road shenanigans

As stumagoo says we didn't get the Gen 3 SWB in Aus direct but they are the same as LWB basically.

Main issue raised in Aus is the injector pump failing and being big bucks to rectify.
