    Well, I'm moving come November. And I'll only have room for 1 truck. Unless I can find a place to hold my 87, I'm gonna have to get rid of it. I really don't want to, since I wanted to make it my trail rig.. but things are looking bleak. I'll still have my 84, but the 87 was my first vehicle, and I'd hate to see it go. Would it be worth it to part it out? I doubt I can find anyone looking for Parts.. I'm obviously going to keep the FI if I do have to get rid of it, and maybe the drivetrain. Not sure.. the thing still runs nice, with a little smoke from some leaky valve seals, and the trans is a little slugish between 2nd and 3rd, but it still works nicely. the body is shot. I mean, would anyone be interested in anything of the truck incase I did have to part it out?

    I really don't think you should part ways with it. Sounds like it has sentimental valve of much more then anyparts. I would look into the storage issue... maybe find a family member or friend that can keep it at their place or sometimes you can get storage out in the country from a farmer, then just pick it up when you want to wheel it.

    If you did part it I'm sure there would be a decent share of people looking for stuff... especially if it is a grey interior, but as I said I really thing you should look into a way to keep it if at all possible.
