haha! he emailed me this morning (i asked if he would take $100) and said he would go no lower than $350 AND he keeps the battery.
Seems a little, uh, overpriced. Consitering I can get the identical truck WITH a good body for $150

lol, he basically took an exploder and choped it into a Ranger. Except a Ranger has doors, an enclosed cab, and sides to the bed with a tail gate. Plus the axle is on the bottom of the leaf springs instead of above, lol, I say thats worth it's weight in scrap - towing costs, no more. I bought a Fox Body Mustang for $500 with Rousch suspension, 5 lug converstion, 5.0 wiring harness and Computer... No way a cut up 4.0 is worth 1/4 of that.

LOUD thing though, incase nobody noticed theres no exaust. just a straight pipe
I wouldn't pay 10 dollars for the engine. If it has been treated the same way as the rest of the truck then it has probably not seen a service or oil change for years.

Hahah, that's true. The 4.0s are pretty tough though. Mines at 120,000, I just took it on a 500 mile trip, and she still runs strong. Nothing much done except regular oil changes and just seafoamed it and changed the plugs.
