    MY buddy called me on saterday asking me to come with him to check out a truck.

    Sure it is only an hour away and he wass throwing in brakefast.

    so we go and check it out it had been in the auto trader for a week an only one other person was going to caome and see it.

    the truck had rolled and the whole body was trashed, so my budd picked it up for a cool 1000 canadian.

    the truck?

    oh not much just a one ton srw pick up 6.2 (seazed(maybe))
    465/205 D60 14ff! oh and an awsome frink plow!

    the guy was having a friend tow it on a tow dolly to swap the 6.2 for a 6.5, and they couldent fit it on frontways because of the hubs, so the next worse thing would be to put it on backwards!

    as the guy when down a hill he started to get a speed woble and both trucks flipped into the ditch!

    Not trying to torpedo here, all that metal is worth 1K. Check the axle tubes and trans and T-case, but if you're stripping it anyways, you'll run across that by the by.

    the roll over was actualy very soft, the guy was smart enuff not to brake and just got off the gas, and the trucks more or less flopped on there sides, then rolled on to the roof.

    no just a bad speller, and i havent been drunk since thismorning

    that and i have nice sized cuts on 3 finger tips from glass so my typing sucks even more.

    I was getting pissed at my friend because the next day we were at a swap meet and every one he could tell he was telling them about the truck and the deal, i was ready to wring his neck, but i cant blame him, i would be doing the same
