Hey JD, the tear down is really coming along. If you think the speedo cable was fun to get off, wait till you plug it back in!! I still owe you a visit and hope to make it out shortly in my 40...I'll let you take it for drive to help keep you motivated...
Back in the day I had an 85 SR5 pick up that I use to haul a 10' box tent trailer that probably weighed about 1800lbs. I had 33" tires on it so 5th gear wasn't much use on any incline, but no real issues other than that.
I am interested and will be trying to make this run. It will be close to the date before I know forsure if I can make it do to the project I am on at work and trying to get my truck to where it is sound for off roading.
I don't think $400 OBO is out of line. I'll keep an eye on this thread as I may be interested. I'm going to need a set of tires in the near future, I'm just not sure yet how big I want to go.
Good luck with the trade.
