    Dam that sucks. Look on the brite side, you could have been about 10 miles in when it happened. Where were you guys going in at? I've never been there but I think it's just down the road from me. I was thinking of going wheelin tomorrow so maybe I can find them. Did I pass you on the way up from Denver??? Didn't see you.

    $1,200??????? Where the heck do you take it?
    If I spent $600 on a 350, I'd expect it to snap my neck.
    If you need the name of a good guy in Denver, I have one.
    PM me if you want it.

    Shee-it! For $1200 I'll ship you mine, hell I'll even wrap it with a pretty red bow![​IMG]

    TH 350's are cheap to build and easy to find rebuilt for small money.

    I have the SM 465 in mine so I don't have to worry about a slush-box going boom...

    1st. Holy cross by Minturn?
    2nd. Don's Garage- 5500 N. Logan Denver 295-1867 ask for Mel and tell him Dave from Locals Choice Plumbing sent you.
    3rd.Beer & Gas....sure I have an extra seat if we are talking about the same place. Just talked to the wife and she said it would be OK.
    4th Not to be a wimp but I haven't got my 14 bolt in the truck yet. Do you think the 10B will handle it? (dumb question, I know).

    What a drag! I'd offer you my TH350 for free, but it's a 2wd, and probably in no better shape than yours.

    I'm so poor I can't even pay attention [​IMG]

    a 2 wheel drive will work all you have to do is change the shafts in them pretty easy and the pump and stuff doesnt even have to come out.

    My friend cuts the tailshafts off to the proper length and puts them in. He cuts them with a sawzall and files them smooth. I don't know how good of an idea that is, but it works for him.
