    Took a trip to Vancouver to pick it up. I asked if it had the flywheel and alternator and starter among other things before committing the trip. he said yes.
    When I got there these were missing he still wouldn't lower the price. Thus is the cost of living on the island, it's not so easy to walk away.
    atleast it is a gen 2 and that's what I wanted.
    While over there I made a call to a fellow dker he sent me to a guy with flat tails and seat rails. With my pockets now empty we headed home, after a few more stops of getting all the things we can't get on the Island. Oh the worse part Janice asked the engine guy if there was any good sushi places close by." Oh yeah my favorite place is just up the road its really good" He does not know what good sushi tastes like.

    You'll hear from a couple of guys on here not to waste time on the 7.1. They are notoriously weak, even weaker than Corolla rear ends.

    Hit up http://monkeycage.island4x4.com/forum.php and see if you can find a 2WD 7.5 truck rear axle. Otherwise you'll have an nice expensive driveway ornament!
