Idk bro. The last thing guys like us need is a project. Especially since you don't have an off season. I know its hard to turn down a low price but even free trucks can be money pits

That thing is rough. I would hold out for a different truck/van body and having 200k on a motor in van that would be a pain to work on.

Yea Krayz I say the same thing it do look rough. You'll find something better than that. I think you'll have to put alot of $$ in it.
We're in the business to make $$ not loose money.

Kajun,

Have you ever considered one of those Penske box vans? You can pick up an '08 or '09 Ford or GM with 150k miles or so for $7 or $8k if you look hard enough.
