    got my Burb running again. Need to drive it a bit and make sure its gonna be reliable. So far I need to fix an exhaust leak, beyond that everything seems good. To my surprise it rides better than my 2wd 3/4 ton 97 Pickup. :rotfl: I guess I forgot about that after driving the pickup for almost a year.

    Why, none of my vehicles are lookers, yet I post pics of them:D
    Did you ever get bigger tires and that lift you were talking about? Or is that on the to do list? Is it just driveable?Can I ask any more questions?

    from a distance and before I knocked off all the rust it looked decent. The rockers are basically gone now. Its a rust bucket plain and simple. but it runs and has 4x4. Only issue as of now is for some odd reason the 241 is leaking ATF from an unknown spot. No lift or tires. Will be getting new tires before I leave(probably 32s maybe 33s). Decided against lifting it just cause its a daily driver/tow rig. And its also a test of my will power. I want to lift it but I know its best not to so I'm forcing myself into restraint and not lifting it.
