why not sell your truck and buy another one down south where they arent so rusted out

seems like a lot of debt for a kid still in school to take on

make it last till 200. I got mine at 198 with no problems. Iv'e had nothing but problems since 200. Let me list:motor running hot=flush and new t-stat. Rear brake cylinder. New front brakes. New plug wires. Radiator leak. Heater control valve broke. Another new t-stat. Front axle leak. Stock hubs go out. Transfer case noise. bad battery connectors I think that's about it. And no, i do not rag my truk, i go mudding once or twice a month maybe, and when i go i don't go fast and smoke the holes, slow is the only way to go. It is just really a pos and i have made a deal with myself that if it throws another more than $100 problem my way before summer that im goin to get a taco 4x4 this summer. Sorry for the ramble. Make yours last till 200.

JR, your truck has over 200k miles. Do you not think things are going to wear out and break?

umm, not that much. I know guys who have trucks over 250 and rag em a lil and have basically no problems. i could understand something every once in a while but this has all happened in the past 5 months. thats a little too many problems for me.
