    Its a 75 3/4 ton. they guy said it just died on him and it wouldn't even turn over. had no juice. so i towed it home and busted out the tester and miltigage and found a shorted wire- the one that comes off the starter and goes to the firewall. well, she fired right to life! /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Its an old Mt. Bachlor service truck and the motor was rebuilt in 97. it has a th400/203, 14 bolt/10 bolt ( /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gifd) and 4.10s also has a 2.5" lift and a big ass Mad Max/deer killer front winch bumber /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Cosmetically its not so shinny, but hey, it was 400 bucks and it runs. the doors/hinges and strikers are FUBARed

    So that makes 3 rigs in the back yard and the wife hasn't left me yet /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
