hmmm. all sounds doable, but i think i'd be out in the streets if i came home with another truck.

I've got a spare engine and everything, but the rusted bed sucks as well.

Yeah, cause waders are like 2500-3000, so if he brings a truck home for that, then put that into it, she really will murder him!

It just seems like a lot of money for a J20 that doesn't run well.

BUT I would love to get it and since I started my new job I get a nice discount on parts

Yeah it could be that it just needs a tune up. Id probably offer 700$ - 800$ as it's unknown whats wrong.

It'd be nice if it just needed fluids and a tune.

Definitely the point... Hope to never test it but would rather be safe then sorry. I'm not in this truck but this is a 1 minute clip of a truck that I used to ride in... Crappy video but they ended up going for a ride! The cage is similar to what I've built and they walked away from it...


I'll try to find another video from in car of another friends truck that also wrecked. Doors still opened and closed after the wreck. The rear currie housing on the other hand snapped in half.
