    Probably they meant '4000 easy miles since it was stolen from its owner...'

    Well either way it's VERY clean for a Wisconsin truck. If its from this area it would have to have only 4000 miles on it and stored inside the rest of the time. Even the salt left on the roads after winter causes more corosion than that thing has.

    Thanks for pointing it out.
    He's close enough that I could drive there and pick it up on a trailer.

    I emailed him.
    The reserve is set at $1000.

    I'd love to have it, but it's too rich for my blood.
    I'd spend $300-$400 prepping it with Por-15 and painting it, then have to do a title swap to run it.
    Not to mention lumber, metal, and weld-rod that I'd eat up making a cradle to do the work.
    It'd be $1500-$2000 by the time I was bolting it down.

    Maybe it wont sell, and I can make him an offer.

    It ended, without meeting the reserve price, at $835.
    I had hoped it wouldn't get that close.

    Wanted to offer him $400, let him demand $500, and get the tub for the cost of buying/installing my patch panels.
    Then sell my tub to cover bushings and title transfer.

    I hate going through the trouble to hatch a plot for nothing.
    Oh, well.
    Never underestimate ebay's ability to find folks that want to pay too much.

    Fletch.

    You think that the tub went for to much money? for how clean it is i would have paid 1000 without even a thought. So what is a clean blazer tub and frame worth.
