    I'm 19 and seriously considering buying a deuce, am I crazy?

    Welcome to the site! :) Let me just tell you, 19 getting a deuce isn't young at all, I bought my truck at 15 years old, and now I'm 17. I drove mine daily for quite a while, 6-8 months, and it was fun, but its nice to have another vehicle to one, switch it up, two, you can go more places...

Bought an inner axle seal from Saturn Surplus, and Cork...
