must not have been you... I live on 15th!

It should be a great truck for you. Make sure to watch the temps if the head hasn't been addressed yet. (I think most have been replaced)

The previous owner swapped the 3L head onto it, otherwise I would of mostlikely passed on it. So far it's great, very excited for a couple trips to the mountains with it this winter

I had somebody on the board install a Trail Gear solid axle swap in the front, and a pick up axle and leaf springs in the back. Trail gear 3" lift springs. If I were doing it again, I'd do it myself, and use better springs. I didn't have a garage at the time. So much wasted money in this rig. Embarassed

say that again after you put half a dozen engines and just as many trans in it, then couple sets of ring and pinions and some axles.

whats wrong with tg springs? they arent any worse than any of the other guys... marlins, all pro

I'm up and around 25-$30,000 including the purchase price of $9600.
3 sets of gears, 4 sets of tires, a cylinder head, 3 lockers, 4 hubs, 3 winches, Longfields, all the trail gear stuff, and an ugly labour bill for the build by 6lug.

The trail gear springs flex well, I just don't care for the gansta' lean.

phftt. I wish I was only in $30 large...

That has been the same experience with TG springs that I have seen. Even on the floor, they are not even, poorly made etc. They also tend to lose arch fast as compared to marlin/all-pro.
