Trucks been sitting for 6 months now. Drove it a couple times just to move it around.

The front end has loosened up a bit but still doesn't drive perfect. Needs more parts yet.

I'm evaluating a flatbed build with toolboxes for the business instead of fixing the bed. Or selling it because I can't seem to keep it on the road.

The dump truck has been being used for my business but because it runs so bad and the price of fuel is high, I've torn into its electrical issues.

I cannot get a straight answer from the scrap yards about what needs to come off of the engine blocks to scrap them so I need to take a block and heads in to the actual to get more info on what they need to have taken off. You get a woman at the front desk who won't answer specific questions. Seems like an extreme amount of effort to drive it an hour to a place that takes that sort of scrap.

Parts sales have been absolutely abysmal.

This forum was a complete waste of time selling parts. I'm done and I'm mad.

I'm expecting a child in January. Worked 60 plus hour weeks all summer and this fall. No time to work on anything.

Probably going to give up on this truck, the 2 door ext cab config is barely more practical than a single cab, which had been terrible for toolboxes and i would guess especially for a child. The truck needs huge amounts of work to get back on the road. Looking to fix it still but it will probably be for sale .

The dump truck basically blew its engine develped a knock as soon as i fixed it. Have a couple lines out on engines.

So I have no running vehicle and big responsibility coming up, it looks easy to buy something. Came close a couple deals on 2015 and up 2500/3500 Chevy trucks but the market is still stupid high. These trucks look great, ride great and are super comfortable. Plenty of power even with a gas engine. Instant love.
