Use the search function on this site and let GOOGLE be a good friend.
Didn't you do ANY research before this?.......
IF, we had pictures of the driveline, we may be of some help.

not even close in "attention to detail". your purchase is a beautiful rig!. regardless of wether or not it was built to be "bullet proof". that is a beautiful rig, saturday night cruise "pismo beach ca" and you are definitley having fun!

You're saying it's worth $4,500?

If that's the case, in this town, I'd have to disagree. If it's a Jeep (and 4x4) and it runs, it will bring 4k+ all day. Stupid, but the truth nonetheless.

I definitely wouldn't give him what he's asking, but it's the cleanest looking one I've seen around here in the price range!
