Is that a Pennsylvania plate? I don't think I'd own something from the NE where they use salt and stuff in the winters.

I need something to tow with, I also need more doors for foster kids.

The plan was to sell the Terra, my Scout II and a Bronco and put some $$ down on a 2002 F350 crew cab. But then this shows up as a possible trade.

Has 4 doors, minimal rust, and old enough I can throw collecter plates on it, then FI on it and a DUI and still have an IH rig. I kinda dig the service bed, has twin 55-gallon tanks, D60/D44 w/ 4.10 gears and powerlocks, 5-speed with granny low. newer 37s, about the only down side is that its a 345 ~ I'm sure I can dig up a 392 for it if I look.

Perhaps I should clarify this WONT be for wheeling. It'll be for towing and winter driving. The Scuggy is for wheeling.

I guess if you need to tow and bring a bunch of kids with you it would be a good ride.

If I am not mistaken, that truck is originally from cali, how many trucks from PA have a CA4WDC sticker on the windshield? Jeff Ismail originally traded it to Paul Treichel who traded it to Dooley Paula who sold it to a guy in San Diego who did not know how to work on it. That is a chevy front with chevy superlift springs. It used to have a shell on top of the service bed that resembled a 21 window vw bus. Dooley had very bad luck with the engines he put in this rig, he thru 3 of them, some used, some rebuilt. I considered buying it from Dooley at one time but I needed a DD at the time.

Overall, it is a totally bitchen truck and needs an owner that will put up with its quirks.

BTW, the truck's name is Goldie.

You know, I am convinced now that you are spying on me. I actually have a Dodge Ram Dually 350 CTD with a service bed. I REALLY like the service bed. It is great to load it with tools and parts. Even loaded I still have room. I like to leave my junk and tools in the truck, locked up. I'm probably going to add a Crane, air compressor, gen set and other goodies on mine. It is a great support rig. Once all of these other wheelers find out about these great service rigs, they will be getting scarce. As you can tell, Im VERY pleased with mine. They are great.

Did I tell you how great a service truck is?

Engine trouble eh? Do you think it was the driver? Do you think the engine thing is worked out? I'd hate to get an engine that 'finally' lasted...its a 345 now, out of a Scout II.

I say trade, it would probably be a lot easier to find another terra than a rig like that

It was owner error then rebuilder error then just bad luck, it just started getting old after a while so he sold it...I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

Just get it, you have the talent to find something that'll stick.

What kind of quirks does it have. Its current owner told me of the t-case mounts needed replacement, and a slight driveline vibration. Do you know anything else?

Id do it. The body looks good has huge gas tanks and a cool bed. What could there be wrong with it that isnt fixable easily with junk yard parts and the ih stuff you are sure to have laying around.

I saw that truck on ebay a while back. I think it's cool. If you don't end up trading I want it!

I dig it. If you think the price is right, jump on it.

Then start looking for a totaled power stroke, and swap the motor in.

I bet there's a reason for those two huge gas tanks.

I say trade, you can always find another terra. My 13 year old son says trade too, and he has a terra.
