It should be easy to find someone to trade you, most want the extended cab.

I was actually planning an update tommorrow. I ran into a problem. I drove it a couple times and it seemed ok ran good and drove good so I decided to drive it to work monday. On the way home the oil pressure gauge started going crazy. I rolled down the window and could hear the valves rattling. I baby'ed it home and pulled the cam sncro to check the gear and it was ok. Put it back together and fired it up and it was back to normal. Tokk it for a ride ...still ok I did a little research and found out it common for oil pump screens to plug up. Anyway I pulled the motor out to pull the pan and check it out. I won't sell it to someone until I trust it.... I have the motor out but haven't pulled the pan yet. I'll investigate tommorrow...

I'll get it figured out. Its got aroud 148,000 miles. The only other thing is maybe they ran it with water in the oil and ate the bearings. I'll post some pics this evening probably.

Well I pulled the motor and pulled the pan and as I expected the pickup was clogged. I changed the pickup and the rod bearings. The mains still looked ok so I just checked them. I managed to get the motor dropped back in but not hooked up. Here's a few pics ..

man, you still got skills. i love it when i see "picked up #...." as a title. it means either a new truck or an update. i forgot what number you were at and thought you bought another one. updates are just as cool though.
