I've got a Chevy 4.3L. That would push it down the road.

Thinking of getting that Dauntless V-6 from Dion.
If you want the 4.3, let me know.

Probably going to keep it simple and keep it stock for now. I need a daily driver more than I need another project. Thanks for the offer man.

Yup, it's a Series III 88". One of the last years of the Series trucks before they switched to the girly spring defender. Came from Harrisonburg, VA, got is from a couple that's headed to africa as misisonaries. He's a bush pilot. All you perves get your minds out of the gutter!

Yeah, it's drivable as is. Got a problem with 2nd gear so for now you've got to go from 1st to 3rd. Will probably play with the tranny a bit this weekend. I'm hoping it's a simple shifter issue, but you never know till you dig into it.

So you went from one broken Rover to two broken Rovers?

Hopefully one of them will be ready by IceBreakers ... it's only a month away!
