    Default Got another deuce! (Dropside!)

    Runs and drives, needs a little TLC. A buddy trailed it home for me. Little bent up from being offroaded. Maybe swap the dropside bed with my nice truck and resell this one, or sell my nice one and fix this one up for me.

    Doesn't look half bad and there is no puddle underneath. Looks like a good start! That tailgate needs a BFH and some heat.

    My buddy Mike (dezert ratt) towed it home thru the mountains for me. She dumped a bunch of gear oil out of the driver side axle boot in that parking lot (on a slant) while we ate lunch. We mopped it all up.
