i found a pretty decent 87 but like the title says the auto trans is gone. i don't know if its worth putting money in the auto, or doing a swap, but i have an 85 22re 5 speed truck so as a parts truck so i guess that eliminates not only the tranny but also the tcase compatibility if looking at it as a parts truck . question is this... is it worth the trouble of putting in a trans and t-case from a newer year model auto, or a stick model, or just keeping what is compatable as a parts truck?? guy wants $1000 for the truck. thanks for any quick responses.... i'm on the fence.
