Am I crazy?

Supposedly someone ran diesel through it and it, of course, didn't run right after that. They tried fixing it themselves but couldn't, so it was parked at the boneyard on base. As for the body damage/missing parts, it spent a lot of time off road in the hands of people who don't regularly drive trucks that size. The doors and grill were stolen while it was in the boneyard. The interior's nice though! Lol well, the back seat is at least.

Took her out for a spin today. Running a lot better, 4wd engaged and disengaged much smoother. I'm starting to think fixing her isn't such a bad idea.

Am I crazy?

Got my Silverado stuck today and the $200 Doorless Dually was able to rescue it. Snapped my strap then hooked up the chain and it pulled it right up out of its holes and up the hill.

Yeah, it was cheap and bought just to drag things around. It didn't even put up a fight though. Time to buy a proper recovery strap.

The front end was hanging off about a 3 foot drop. The rear end was up to the axles and the front end was hanging. My belly slid eas firmly planted.
