Your truck's looking good! It's cool that you have one that's not in need of extensive refurbishment or rebuilding! But you're taking the time to dress her up, make her more functional, and most important you're making her yours... Putting your personality into her. I like that! Keep up the good work!

One question... You mentioned in one post that you're hoping to get 550k+ miles out of her. How many are you at now? Is she already high miles or are you just hoping to keep her going for a really long time?

last check she was just under 230K so at this time Im trying to get the money together to get the transmission fixed on her which was 100% factory original parts (may keep it once she's fixed so i can learn on a broken trans how to tear one down and all that….who knows….I just need to figure out how I'm going to pull off getting it fixed first…...

ok got another good (i think??) update, the truck we brought it home a few days ago after sitting it finally decides to at least shift to drive (and reverse) thankfully so I am able to drive it, although it will not get over 25 MPH (40KPH approx) and there is a loud wine noise, from what I am thinking is the 4x4 being engaged so not sure what or how but it feels like the manual transfer case is some how engaged and locked in place as shifting the lever does not seen to make any difference in its behavior, so I am thinking of pulling out the front drive line shaft to effectivly disconnect the transfer case from the front wheels and see if that does any thing better, at least in theory it should prevent the 4x4 from tearing its self up on the dry pavement!!

anyways once I get the transmission pulled im going to have a temp replacement put in and I will begin rebuilding the original to put back in (love having the original 230K unit in...) and I will be asking for lots of guidance from those who know what they are doing so im looking forward to this project but also kinda nerved about it as Im now venturing into new territory that I haven't done any thing with but read about!!!


so I look forward to learning and revieving some (and most likely) much needed help with my upcomming project. also planing on dropping the old leaky oil pan in favor of a new pan which if im looking at the truck correctly will have to come off to get the the transmission and get that off so I might as well get that done also!!!
