Well drove up to Napa this morning with the old man to checkout a 98 crew cab long bed srw chevy. Guy was asking 5k, but it had a few issues. Some large some small, but then again its all nuts and bolts. It has 205k on the chassis, 100k on the motor/tranny. 454, 4x4, power everything. It needs, a cat, a windshield, a tierod and pitman, an alignment, the lift blocks are installed backwards so it vibes on take off, and the taillights seem to be burnt out. Oh and the interior is nice other then the front seat which is worn and torn on the drivers side. Got it for $3500. Its 2 years out of reg so the tags are going to be about a grand. I figure Ill have around 5k into it. Even though it needs work I think this is a big step up from my current tow rig. Its got way more power. Worked on it yesterday and fix the lift block issue. Had to weld some 1/4" plate to the top of the perches as the perches on the newer 14bolts is way rouded on the edges and this is what killed the lift blocks. Also got the brake lights working. They had the groudn dissconnected, a blown fuse, and 2 wires spliced in that were shorting each other out.
