I have a '78 3/4 ton 4x4. Originally all it needed was a tranny, and it was a good deal for $800 I thought, with a rebuilt 350, new exhaust, and mostly rust free body (just one dent). Well, almost two years later...I've changed out the tranny once, the T-case twice, then I swapped out the axles and put 3.73's under it (two reasons I did that was the brakes were shot, and the 4.10's were a bit low for 27" tires). Turns out, the rear brakes in the axle I just put under it are shot...the ignition switch broke, you cant tell it has new exhaust cause the doughnut gaskets are shot and leaking, the motor is gutless, needs a tune-up, carb needs a rebuild, windshield is cracked, carpet is ripped, and now the tabs expired. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif I got rid of this truck twice. The first trade, I would have lost money on if the guy kept it...but, he is handicapped and couldnt have a "problem truck", so I took it back and told him I would find him another truck; so instead of losing some money, I know lost a bunch more. So fixed a few things, and traded it for a '91 Ford Taurus Wagon with 61,000 original miles, plus he was going to give me $1200 in payments. It seemed too good to be true. It was. Then more problems arose on the truck and I took the truck back and gave the car back. Now I owe the guy $200 back for the 1st pmt he made to me. I dont even want to work on this truck anymore...but now I'm into it like almost $3000 /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif, and I could maybe sell it for the $800 I initially paid. Should I just take a loss and get rid of this cursed thing for whatever I can (maybe I can get $1500 when the snow flys, although bad brakes are not a good feature); or should I just take the time and fix everything that needs to be fixed, and try to at least break even or cut my loss? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif If you had this curse (and also owed a friend $2700 in a week), what would you do? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif (the $2700 was money I borrowed to pay off the truck I gave to the first guy as a replacement; I paid $3500 for the truck, but I did keep the big lift and 44" tires). Here is a picture of The Cursed Truck.
