    Anyone know of any for sale.. we had a lead on one. it fell through I think.. never heard back from the guy.. We would be looking for one that run's, drives, and is in need of some work..
    Anyone have anything fitting this criteria.. let us know.. Central Texas or anywhere in Texas would be great..
    Oh.. and prices.. $1500 to $2000 range.

    rocko, it's been a real long time since I've been here and I see you are still buying up all the 4X4's in Texas. I'll keep an eye out for ya.

    Howdy. I seen a 78 in the Auto Trader magazine with a 6" lift and a 400ci for 2500. It's been in there since before I left for the Army so who knows if there's something realy wrong with it or what.

    How about a 82 K30 with a 454 Your choice of 465 or TH400. D60, 14bolt with 4.10's, NP205. Black and siver exterior and black and dark grey interior. new seat, new headliner, new carpet, Kenwood stereo with 12" subwoofer, 108K miles and checked comp about 3 months ago and all cylinders were 140-150PSI.
    4" lift on 35x15 BFG's on black 15x10 rims. I even have a new factory 502 roller cam that i just haven't had time to put in yet.
    Only things wrong with it is the typicle Chevy wiper problem with turning on every once in a while by itself, paint is original and something i've been wanting to redo and i just put a dent in the tailgate with the tounge of my trailer hit it. It does leak some out out of the valve cover which i was going to replace when i put the cam in.
    The only reason i'm putting it up for sale is that i need a super of crew cab so i can haul the whole family with me when i take the jeep on a trip.
    It is my daily driver and tow vehicle. I just towed my Heep to Amarillo and back anbd would feel comfortable driving it across country. It gets 9-10 with out a trailer but with a trailer it willget betweeb 6-8 depending on speed.
    I won't put it on Ebay because i don't want some Fawking Ya-hoo getting my K30 and not knowing what they got.

    I'm asking 4000. I know it's more than you are wanting to spend but it's a hell of a truck. And your the kind of driver i'd like to see get it. Call me.

    Charlie,
    I went down to Copperas Cove to pick up some springs from Bruce last night and saw an 80 SWB for sale. It was at this dealer. Thought you might be interested.

    Hey Charles I found one here in Longview for you. It's a 86 SWB,350,465,10 bolts,4" lift, New 35x12.50R15 and really all it needs is some TLC and a paint job. The body is straight with little to no rust at all. He is asking 3800.00 but he said he would come down to 3500.00 or even more if someone was serious. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif If you want I can get pics probably tomorrow.

    Let me know.

    Eric
