Now... who's insurance company is paying you? Did you and her have collision? Just you? Just her?

It's been a while since I was in an accident, so I can't remember who paid for my car repairs.

Glad to see that your ordeal is almost over. Just need to get the check, and find another truck.

Her insurance is paying. We both have geico.

I can't find a single truck I like. I'm looking for something already lifted. I can't find anything.

I'm getting the leak fixed, I only have the rental til tuesday and I know I won't find anything by then.
I'm thinking I should just spend the money and fix it, throw a new door on, fix up the bed and rebuild the front and get a winch. It'll cost me less than $500 for body parts plus the winch(harbor frieght has a 10K lb winch onsale for like 299 next month)

So what's the life expectancy of the 4.0l engines.
I found a pair of beautiful 4.0l 4wd rangers.
1998 Ford Ranger - GOOD DEALS ON WHEELS Newfield, NJ
That's the one I've been looking for. Blacked out step side with cap. Downside it has 219K miles and 3995, could only pay off 2500, the rest would be tough to gather up.

1995 Ford Ranger - GOOD DEALS ON WHEELS Newfield, NJ
Little beat up, one pic it looks like there's a bit of rust on the frame. Lower miles 128K and only 2995,
easily affordable, pay it off in cash.

I'm checking them out this weekend. Gotta make up a list so I can do my shopping this weekend.

Well, I went to go attempt to drive it down the road to the shop to have it fixed. It got 3 feet and died. Started back up sputtered until she died. Just cranks all day long.
She has breathed her last breath. She's getting stripped down so If you want something make me an offer.

I have yet to get the money from geico. Tuesday is rolling in fast and soon I'll have nothing to drive.

I'll try on monday when I go to work since its sitting next to where i work right now. There's really not much to the truck. The interior is just the dash and door panels. It's stripped for easy cleaning. Most body parts are dinged.
