Sad day :(

Just sold the 88 Ranger for a grand. Even with it having 301K miles on it.
There gonna do a rebuild or something with it, so I only hope they do, so that it may live on and keep driving.
Be a damn shame if it ends up sitting in some back yard to rust away, man that's sad to think about.
But now i drive a nice 1998 Dodge Ram V8 with only 126K miles.
Pictures will be up later on today.

I don't think I need to worry.
And besides, it's all about how you treat it that says how long it lasts.
And it was rebuilt a year ago anyway.

This transmission isn't made by Dodge, I can't remember for the life of me of whom it was built.
All i know is that it's rebuilt a year ago, and it's a heavy duty tranny, as it did a lot of pulling back and fourth by the first owner.

Well the main reason I sold it was because I'm a bigger guy, 275 pounds, and i stand at 6' 4"
So the biggest reason of me selling it was because I didn't have no room, and second i just love the Ram PERIOD.
And it's not a original Dodge transmission, don't have a clue what it is, but it's a good one, rebuilt a year ago, and it's one of them heavy duty ones.
Not the **** Dodge first installed when they made these trucks.

Hey I'll take a Dodge any day, over any other truck.

Yeah it does
But it was just to small for me, even being an extended cab.
I'm a big dude, so i really needed the room that the Dodge gives me.
