    Well, with the combination of breaking the prongs on the clutch fork and having to remove the tranny to fix and not having any money to do the things I want im gonna put her under for a while. I'm gonna try to fix her up slowly, by the time I get her going again (hopefully w/in a year) she'll have some of this if not all.

    if things get better for me i plan to have a full cage, guages, locked dana 60 w/ crossover and AGR rock ram, and 37"boggers.

    Nothing to cry about brother.
    That's the way mine is getting redone...slowly.
    I wish I had the money to go out and do it at one time, but I don't...so you're not the only one.

    i will cry with you,
    i am not in as bad as you at this point, but every time i get something fixed and think great, now i can just drive it for a while, something else goes. first of the year i spend a grand having the tranny rebuilt, and since then it has been back 7 times, and the shortest time they kept it was 5 days, the longest 15 days, and i bought this truck cause i like to drive it. today i am strugglimg with the steering column
    good luck
    i try to keep my as a daily driver that is comfortable around rown, sounds like you want to get pretty serious with yours. I would have to sell my offshore boat to do that, or get rid of the wife.

    Well I am in the same boat as you. Though I put mine up on stands instead of under[​IMG]. It will get to you seeeing her down like that. Just remember to start her up every week.

    Most mine was ever parked for was a week when I did the motor. Even that was depressing.

    I won't let mine do that. I won't eat if it will pay the part bill. Its going to take time to build a good rig if you are on a limited budget.

    Rip it down do bare bones and build it up one part at a time. Scour for deals and do it right. Just an option.
