I'm very torn about it.

Beaucoup rust damage.
The transmission needs to be rebuilt or replaced.
I can no longer tackle those jobs, so I was going to pay someone to fix it.

Then the brakes went out, I think it's the master cylinder.
Bought one, then when I was going to move it to fix it, it started popping fuel pump fuses.

So, I've been battling back issues and procrastinating dropping the tank to check it, and now the tank is leaking gas.
I think the seam's corroded.

Other than that, it's a good truck.
I did drop the tank, I think the leak was coming from a rusted fuel pump nipple, but I'm not sure how it could leak from the top.
There are multiple rust spots on the tank, but it hasn't started leaking yet.
Whatever that little unit is on the frame side of the tank got smashed trying get the tank off.
Frame is shot under the bed, especially over the axle.
Carrier bearing is shot too.

Good morning everyone.
Been a long time. I had a back surgery and 2 new knees since the last time I was here. I've been off work since April recovering from the knee replacements, hopefully I'll get back next month.
My truck has been sitting in my back yard the whole time.
My 2004 Lightning Yellow RX8 GT needs a new engine, I bought a 2004 Winning Blue RX8 GT in the meantime.
I can't afford to restore both of them, the truck needs too much to justify it on my budget, so I've decided to part with it.
I see classic 4WD trucks going for good money on Bring A Trailer, so maybe someone could use a parts truck for their own restoration project.
I thought about parting it out, but I'm not up to it.
I can't figure out how to post pics. It's going to be difficult to sell unless I can figure it out.

I'm back.
Bought a 2015 Frontier SV 4X4 longbed.
Sadly it's an autotragic.
62k miles and a camper.
I still have the '95.
I need to figure out how to post pics so I can sell it.
