    My cherry new tow rig, ya i know its not as cool as Tims new rig :) but for $900 bucks, it will get the job done. Im starting to think it actually only has 95,000 original miles.
    It runs very well and has the tightest 4sp i have ever driven.

    Yea, he started at 1400 (which it is probably worth) but after a month of talking him down, HIS WIFE finally gave in.... I was shooting for 800....... He almost did it but i could hear his ol lady screaming at him in the background.

    Hey Brad... maybe we can turn your post about a new cheap tow rig into a post about "...which tranny is best in my new Dodge..." ??? I know that is how mine turned out...

    Well aren't NV 5600's pretty good? But I'm thinking like an NV 950000000000....bigger number in the front and more zero's.... :thumb::haha:

    Nice looking truck ya got there!

    Is that a 79 ??--it looks a lot like my 79 C10...Nice score for the money!--I guess things dont rust as badly in washington state as they do here--you must get no snow,or they dont salt the roads to death like they do here!...It appears to be a one ton truck,seeing it has the marker lights on the tailgate(or did someone just put one on it??)---I wish I could score some nice older trucks around here--there just aint many good rust free ones,tons of rotboxes and bondo buckets,but hardly anything thats decent,especially a 4x4 one...:crazy:

    Sure they are, but they're not making Dodges with NV 5600s anymore.

    Brad,

    Nice tow rig. Not everybody needs or wants a bling, expensive new tow rig. It was kinda an accident that I ended up with one, I just got pissed off looking for a good used rig for a reasonable cost and ordered a new one.

    http://image01.webshots.com/1/7/58/44/152575844FwLjcx_ph.jpg

    That piece of crap has been my tow rig for several years. I got it for free from an old man for putting an engine in his truck. It's an 87 R30, 2wd, SRW, 350/400/14 bolt with 4.10s. It was a little slow towing 9,000 lbs becuase the motor was beyond worn out, but as long as I kept oil in it, it worked fine.

    It has nearly no floor pans, and the cab mounts are so shot if you hit a big enough bump going down the road it will pop into neutral.

    The TH 400 puked again (when I got it the trans was messed up, too) so it's going to Chevy heaven so I can build a truggy from the engine. :grin: :grin: :grin:

    I'll trade ya tow rigs when mine comes in if you want....if we can trade payments as well.

    Sorry, this should work.

    http://community.webshots.com/album/152575733rUHKvD

    I was just posting up pics of my old tow rig.

    I ordered a new 05 Dodge Ram 3500, 6 speed/4wd/CTD to replace that.

    Just showing that everybody doesn't need a bling tow rig to drag their offroader around...that old truck worked just fine despite not having any floor boards, and I got it for free.

    maby just for a day or two:D

    no its a 75. Its my favorite year. THey dont have shoulder straps for the seatbelts. Just lapbelts. Twice i have been pulled over in my other truck (also a 75)for no seatbelts. Then i show the cop the lapbelts, and he leaves. Makes for a good laugh.
    They dont salt the roads around here, its nice, except they spray some kind of de-icer on the roads in the winter that eats wiring and actually freezes at 20 degrees.......
