    Oh no...that's terrible.

    Hoping for the best, but one to face reality, too. BEST of luck, Mitch, and keep us posted. You certainly have sympathetic friends here.

    Nice of your uncle to do that for you as well. Sometimes family isn't so helpful when money is in between. Well, I guess you need to start looking for another Ram50 huh?

    Too bad - that truck was clean. He is not going to scrap it is he?

    Pennyman most people that can't fix these trucks for $50 seem to scrap them. Pretty sad. That looks like a real clean truck.

    Mitch tell your uncle you'll take $1000 back he can keep the $500 for the scrap value and go out and find another engine or drop in a V-6/8 and have some fun.
