    ya here is an up date on her. SHE IS ****ed i had a friend of mine look at her to see what she needed for up keep he said there is about 6 feel of frame on the drivers side that looks good but he could put his screw driver through .. it had homemade spring shackles it isn't the proper motor (supose to have a 4 plug motor it had an 8 plug motor(96) ) not the right trany no gas tank straps ...... now if i would have know this i wouldn't have bought it but when i got it it was packed full of snow and i couldn't see anything good enough other than the crack im sooo pissed and the ***hole wont take it back GRRRRR!!!!!! ... but i might have sale for the motor whick will give me almost all my money back

    dude...that stinks!

    Maybe if you break her down and sell some of the good parts you can come out ahead.

    You could probably take some sort of legal action, but that would cost you more than the truck is worth.

    You may want to threaten with a letter from an attorney, or tell him you are hiring an attorney and see if that makes him give the money back.
