400 bucks for 1 ton of spare parts! I think that was a real good deal. LOL just kidding it looks perfect to me.

I think any work truck can be transformed into a nice ride. Here an example of how i have been accesorizing my work truck

Is that a 3.0 or a 4.0 and is it a manual or an auto?

So you did finally buy this one. I remember you posting it up when I put up that CL find for the DWB 4x4 Off Road with no title.

Did this one have a title, I can't remember.

Yeah I only have one that runs but it's done for. I either have to buy one, or a parts truck, or rebuild one... I'm hoping to find a parts truck

No no weird noises except a squeek in the back. This is our 4th Neon, we had a 98 , 01 and 2- 04's. The other 04 was almost new at the time. None of them made any engine noise and only minor problems like lower control arm bushings and a bad radiator seam on the 01.

Uhhh sorry I am going to have to pass...lol The plan is (since it's actually my daughters) to sell it and get a newer small car for her. At that point the neon will be an extra car....lol

Well I'd be a little concerned if you put litter in there. That would easily explain the problem lol
