I only need the Hood, you can keep the vents & drip pans to sell. I already have them. I work @ Ft. EUSTIS, so you wont have to travel too far.
BTW... shoot me a price.

i thought the 46RE bell housing was part of the transmission case like the 46RH?

It is . Case comes in 2 pieces , main and overdrive units . Bell housing is part of the main case .

Maybe the pics don't show the damages well but I'd be fixing that and driving it again

I was actually still driving it up unitl last friday, i actually pulled the frame back so the rear doors open correctly now. I would have fixed it but has 232,000 on it, needed a bumper, a tailgate, the frame pulled, lower ball joints, transfercase on its way out (like all the 5.9 ones are) ect. made out ok with insurance so i was actaully able to find a good deal on another 5.9 with 120k and a super clean body/interior so im going to swap my brakes and stereo over and whatever else the new one needs and part out the old one. I hate to be the one to put her in her grave but i think ill do better parting it than selling it....

Id take 150 for vents-complete with under trays & hardware (gonna give 1 other guy 1 more day to get back to me on the hood/vents), and $200 for grill. would do both for $325 shipped in lower 48. pics link below. Some paint lifted/chipped on vents but no cracks of any kind. Grill good shape. Has a very small chip that you can only see with hood open. (http://www.capandhitch.com/1998grand...s/IMG_0324.JPG) The half moon shape is supposed to be there. the chip (at 8 o'clock in the pic)is very small, and that is a scratch, not a crack next to it. Can take more pics if you want.

Thanks!
