Oh hey, over on Garagejournal.com if you get a great deal on something we say, "You SUCK". If you get a fantastic deal we say, "I hate you!"

Kidding of course, but you suck AND I hate you! That is an unbeleiveable deal. It'd be a great deal for the engine alone but with a 700R4? Geez!

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Dont hate Armorget, I can haggle with the best....and thats exactly what i did. The guy wanted 800. But i was able to talk him down. Truth be told i heard it run for about 20minutes, didnt see any smoke nor did i see water in the oil.
But i will open it up and hope for the best. My neighbor owns a transmission shop so, ill have to be nice to him this year....

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Hey Dan, yes I added a piece at a time on each side, allowing some cool down time. I cut all of my pieces and tacked them first. I then switched sides welding. And im still measuring..it seems to be holding.

Well here is what i did today, cut off the front stub, closed up the frame and welded a crossmember in front and bolted one in the rear, mounted the frame on two engine stands. I will remove the suspension tomorrow and flip it over so i can finish boxing in the from from the bottom.

If you had said you paid 800 for it I'd still say I hate you. Like I said, even at 800 it's half of what I'd pay for an engine alone around here. I don't think I could even get a 5.3 for that price.

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

I removed the suspension, flipped the chassis over so i could weld the underside of the frame. Took me longer then expected, welded small pieces inside the frame for support. Tack welded the last pieces to box it in, but was tired and quit. Will take some good pics later.

I finished boxing in the frame. Since i flipped the frame, i only took close up pics of the under side of the frame. Next step, box in the frame in the rear so i can fit the Explorer leaf springs.
