My observations......Andy wont have a truck for over 6 more months :rofl

Not a bad price on that engine....be ready to shell out some $$ for a good harness though.

In the last week I've we've sent a buyer for his jeep and even lined up a trade for his jeep but he's failed at both as far as I know. But then again, who am I to talk. I can't sell my hooptie either! Granted, at least I'm making an effort to sell it. Dip should be at the house today when I get home so this weekend it'll be red for sure! After that, it's out of my hands, that's the most I'm doing to prep/help it sell other then keeping it listed and in sight as much as I can.

And wait, you need more then like 5 wires to make that thing run? I figured a chevy would be more simple then toyota, I've got my yota running off 5 wires.

No you don't, but I'd estimate about another 3K for that thing to run correctly (I don't see all the accessories there?)

My LS2 has all the BS removed, custom plugs for dual electric fans if I choose, smog legal if I choose, the DBW new, AC will still work, wires to piggyback the Jeep PCM for my stock gauges to work, blah blah blah. Engine has 31K on it, dyno sheets for 405hp/400ftlbs, ready to drop in with NEW GM Perf. Stage 2 4L70e. All for less than the asking price + my guesstimate of that LS3....and I have warranty

How is the trade my fault? All I had was a number that I called, twice. Dude never called me back.

Probably pretty close to correct unless I trade the Jeep for a truck. I only have a couple of weeks left in country before leaving for 4+ months.

Probably just going to put in in my Jeep now.....or buy a JK as a daily driver and put it in that. Not really interested in a dedicated go-fast anything. I got a ride in T.J.'s TT coming up and a ride in TT#53 in a month so I'll just let all you desert guys spend $$ and chauffeur me around

Andy, just accept the fact you're not selling your jeep... LOL

I'm supposed to ride in TJ's truck for that thing too but honestly doubt I'm going to show up, I'm just not really interested in riding in a TT...

I'm not sure when any of the gofast rigs at my house will even touch dirt again. We're not going to run that race in November now since Jason's not coming out and I'm just not really that interested in it personally. Last we talked was him coming out maybe in Jan for a race or a screw around weekend and then V2R next summer. My toyota isn't touching dirt till it's gone or it's too late and I missed the deal to buy the other truck. If I get that other truck, it could be as much as a year till it's ready to touch dirt cause I'm not going to put a dime into it till I've recovered what I pull out of savings to purchase it. So looks like really you're only near term short rides are those two at this point since everything at my house is more for looks then action these days.

Riding in a TT is on my bucket list so it shall be done. If I ever move away from Vegas, I don't want to wish I had!!.

I'll have plenty of dirt/rock time in my Jeep, the buggy when it's done, and I have no doubt something else will find it's way to me to keep me satisfied for a while. Heck I may even take a shot at dirt bikes. BUT I really want a boat....then I can go to Havasu and watch all the race trucks go by as I sip my beer and eat carne asada tacos.

haha did you put "for sale or trade" in your ad or something?



For you guys that think that you put some miles on your Jeep, Wednesday will be 6 months since I got the new Jeep and I just rolled over 10k miles on the drive back from Duck Creek. To top it off, I work from home and cannot blame it on my commuting!!

Nope, nothing about a trade that's for sure cause the only thing I'd trade for is a particular F150 in the back of a friends shop... Well unless something better was offered but I don't imagine an even more smoking deal then what I'm trying to work out already is going to come along. LOL I doubt someone with a professional shop built prerunner type truck like what I'm trying to move into is going to look to downgrade to a garage built toy. LOL
