    While yer at it check the sale mags. See what a used K30 goes for. I wonder how much it'd cost to ship one down here?

    Well lets just say shipping from and to alaska isnt cheap. I would guess shipping form the anchorage area is about1500 bucks to seattle then shipping a truck from juneau would be around 700 and from ketchikan is about 300. If you ever do find a truck your gonna have shipped ship it on the alaska marine lines ferry its about 200 bucks cheaper.

    Sure, no problem! I will just stop somewhere before getting to your place and swap out the D60 for a D44 or 10 bolt. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    oh man i'd love to have one!!

    i almost had one for free too. my uncle had a '79 4x4 K30 and if i did 40 hrs of work for him he'd get it towed to my house, well i get mudbogAD, my best friend and we go over there and start workin, we work one day and when i get home my uncle calls me and says "leave your friend at home tomorrow, you don't get enough done with him there, all you do is talk about the truck." so my dad blows up at him (interesting, my dad is 6'3"-270lbs and my uncle is 6'4"-240lbs) so now my dad and i dont' talk to him. i almost had a FREE K30

    ask mudbogAD, it was absolutely terrible.

    You can always go back and patch things up with your uncle...just so as long as you can get the truck from him.

    And once he has the truck brought over to your place and signed the title and given it to you, tell him where to stick it!! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
