    Not a bad starting point for what the buy it now is though. It allready has a 60, and a 14 with 5.13's just needs x over and wheel the piss out of it.

    I would actually really like that drive train. Throw a SYE kit on there and have some fun. I was thinking that BIN price was really good, if I didn't already have a rig I would seriously consider that one. Oh and buddy, another thing to finish that truck off would be a fender trim job that doesn't look like it was done by a drunk midget weilding a chain saw.

    a few observations:

    First off, I think that someone put a lot of effort into building that truck, just as much, if not more as any of us have. There are lots of thing s that you or I may have done differently or would change. Second, I know lots of people who have a difficult time typing (including myself), and really don't care about minor mistakes. Finally, it is extreemly difficult to sell and recover the cost of building a rig like that. I know a guy that swapped a cummins in a restored 79' GMC truck. He tried to sell it for $6500, but no one wanted it. $6500, was about what it was worth, yet he couldn't get $5000 for it. So, he's going to build it into a trail rig. --end of rant.

    My question is what are those things attached from the tailgate to the rear wheel wells? Looks like torshion bars or something??

    if you expect to build a car or truck, and sell it for a profit, you need to find a new hobby. you NEVER make money on a project, and very rarely do you break even.

    the best chance he has at gettin as much money back as possible is to part it out, but for most people thats a big pain
