    She got her first taste of mud, gravel, and racked down the sides with brush and blackberries... The little scratches came out with cleaner wax. I didnt buy it to show! We were looking for a lost hunter up in the White River drainage - 73yo diabetic guy, got his truck stuck and was stranded without meds. They found him this morning alive and well

    The bumpers still havent grown on me. I like the Sport bumpers better. I can not agree more on the wheels and spacers. Sent from my SM-G900R4 using Tapatalk

    Having a 2001.5 in my driveway with 280K miles that PM servicing all along the way was done buy quality mechanics...there a ton of maintenance issues needed at that mile point enough so the the extra $$ too bring it up to a "good condition truck" will be many/several thousand $$$ , may I suggest you get a few years newer and avoid those all at once $$ needed to give you a reasonable truck to drive and RV with piece of mind RVing all the rubbers / body bushings and spring bushings will need to be replaced as they are old hard and usually rotted , brake up grading will be $$ if you do a good brakes package, the engine is nearing the exterior hard parts being gone through like power steering / vacuum pump assembly , alternator , water pump , radiator , all the rubber hoses , heater core , air conditioner , and on and on all adding many $$ to a rigs price to just bring it up to a "standard" you be happy with traveling ...tranny is about done as to reliable miles [250K is a totally used up milage number as well as the transfer case miles] big $$ there if you owned this truck you would have done these things a little at a time as needed but buying one and bringing back to a level of confidence is pricey $$ .... skip it and add a few $$ to the purchase price and get a good rig to start with. ONE MANS OPINION

    The bore was in very nice shape when I removed the burned piston. HOWEVER is has sat for over 6 years. I would not put it back into service without a through cleaning of the block. I would also lightly hone all cylinder bores and install new rings. I am positive that a shadetree mechanic could get by with less. This is a true 40.000 mile engine, it did tow nearly 100% of the miles on it. I appreciate the discussion on this block, however I am selling not only the block and crank but also my word. IF the buyer would find any reason to reject the block, I would gladly refund the purchase price.

    I have a Harbor Freight 20 ton press I don’t need anymore. $50.00 and it’s yours. The jack was replaced several years ago. I also added a knob so the handle isn’t needed for releasing pressure. I cut the cross member out of the bottom years ago for clearance on something I was doing. I can tack something in it’s place if it is a big deal but I have never really needed it. The press is located in Longview WA. at my shop. I will not ship, of course. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have a route planned out and saved for my retirement. It's a giant loop from WA through ID MT WY SD NE KS CO NM AZ NV UT OR stopping at all the old west points of interest Like Dodge City, Tombstone etc. Gail and I always think like you said on our road trips. The old west seems fun and glorious until you really think what it was like traveling by horse and wagon over all that area and terrain. Harsh doesn't even begin to describe it.

    For boat hauling and going in and out of people's driveways, the shorter the truck the better.

    As far as I know the core in my '98 has never been replaced, I'm not sure if there's an easy way to tell. Ever since I bought the truck I fully expect it to go out on me any day, but it's still hanging on, probably go in winter when it's cold AF in the shop.

    You are right ..if you do not know the law they will herd you around and invent shet that is wrong. I could tell ya a million scale house stories some too funny some so stupid. Regular state patrol does know OS law at all,,..they are just there for the speedy boys .

    If I were still under my business, I probably wouldn't be sweating this. It would be obvious how to proceed. The issue is always how are you legally responsible in the case of an accident and what are you required to have to not be instantly at fault. The oversize thing just makes it tougher. And I am sure that a heavy, legal width load would not be much of an issue. But with people getting ticketed for a variety of reasons, I figured it was a good conversation to have. Dave

    I actually enjoyed painting my horse trailer. I am definitely not a body repair guy. I would never try to do bodywork on a car that I cared about. The trailer was a single stage paint so it was much easier than a basecoat clearcoat. I wouldn't want to make a habit of it but once in a while it's fun.

    Exactly why I’m still willing to wrench on my 12v with 384k. I will never be able to justify a vehicle that costs more than most people make in a year.
