I def understand the project truck idea, it's a relaxing thing to be able to recede from daily life's craziness to focus on one thing.

Welcome to the mn truck thread Mt. I'm over by lake como in St Paul. What do you do that has you driving the ranger all the time? I saw your mileage count, very impressive!

Gahhh, it's driving me nuts now. I've even resorted to looking at craigslist ads from....*gulp* Wisconsin

I'm figuring for 2 grand or less I could pick up a running, driveable bronco and get started on it. Now to go book my appointment to sell some blood.

Also- not to be dense, but congrats on the upcoming raise/promotion.

And don't worry about looking around... when I just shopped on a limited timeline I found myself looking in Iowa!!!

Guy in Des Moines with an '88 for 1800....this is about what I'd be looking at. Little hack n' pack on the bodywork but nothing I guess I couldn't fix.

Now I know how my dad feels when he sits at work every day and cruises CL for old motorcycles...

Yeah it's a 4x4. I wouldn't pay 18, that's for sure. I'd make a lower offer....but that's kind of in my wheelhouse.

This is all kind of putting the cart before the horse because I don't have the money, but I'm just kinda getting a feel for the prices. Figure I can put together the money in fairly short order if I get my raise, then I can at least have it and get it mostly up to snuff by November so I can take it up north for deer opener. I want something like this with a short wheelbase and 4 wheel drive for hunting those dirt tracks on state forest land.
