99% chance what ever I get will have some sort of Chevy power plant in it

5.7, 5.3 or 6.0.... Its not all about power in the crawling business but its nice to let a healthy V8 just roar every now and then.

Wow I almost didn't see that coming. I know how hard it is to let a truck you've loved so much go.

So let's see the new build already!!!

Wow, that makes me glad my ranger is a mall crawler. Hope the new project is as good as that one.

Well, I know it sucks, but I think you are better off starting over. And as for the powerplant in the next one...350 SBC is the only way to go. Or a 383 Stroker/385 Fast Burn crate motor. lol

yea man that thing was a ****in tank.. the only things that gave out were a direct result of my right foot.. control arms, ball joints, radiators ..........windshield ha. The alternator, AC and stuff like that all survived. Pretty damn reliable for 4 years, fired right up for me every time except 2 instances and I never figured out the problem cause I couldn't duplicate it for long enough to diagnose it.
