Is a Nissan hardbody worth it?

I have never owned a truck. I have certainly never bought a used one, but now I am in love. I've got my eyes on a 1993 Nissan 4cyl 4x4 with 85,000 miles. I've asked a few mechanic friends and have gotten very different responses. One - this is a gold mine! The other - buy a Toyota! This thing is old! Toyota with high mileage > Nissan with low mileage.

So, I guess my question is, is buying a 1993 truck a mistake? It seems to be in great condition, with low miles, but will I be nickel and diming myself for the next 5 years +?

I have been looking for a manual 4x4 that gets decent gas mileage, and this Nissan hardbody seems to tick all the boxes....

Advice???
