I'm not sure what its future is at this point, the trans is supposed to be bad but there is no fluid on the stick. The guy cut the fuel line to try and drain the gas out of it so I fixed that and started it this evening but the motor is questionable because the top end rattles...it was cheap ...lol who knows at this point maybe I'll run into another 4wd frame! May even part it.

That would be a possibility but probably too expensive.

I probably won't keep it, I won't be able to keep 2 registered...my oldest daughter has her permit and my younger daughter is old enough and wants to take the test for her permit...I would have to sell the black truck...uh... gas isn't hurting that bad yet, but its getting there...lol

Hey Brian I am going to send you an email with that guys number and the info
