& moved it to the upper part where my home sits (my property is on a hillside) so I can put stuff into it to take to the dump.
I had planned to take this box off and put it onto my '92 because the box on it is rusted through one one side while still good on the other side.
My friend Tuggy is a welder so I asked him how much he'd charge me to switch the boxes. He looked at the '92 and said it would cost less to fix this hole than it would to change the boxes as it is a lot less work for him to do it this way (cut rust out, weld new metal in, paint that area). So okay, that kills the plan to use that box on this truck. Oh well, I still want to switch the windows from the extended cab. You see, these 2 side windows in the '89 open while in the '92 they don't. Ya right. They are the same size and yet just a tiny bit different shape, so they can not be changed over. Drat!!!
I thought about keeping the '89 in case I ever need to replace a differential or tranny or whatever, but decided this is only a good idea for someone who can change the parts over themselves. By the time you pay someone to do the work it's just too costly to make it worth while. So now I want the '89 gone and to have my $$ back. Today I am putting it up for sale. This time of year it will be a great buy for someone who likes to hunt or fish (4x4), it's great as a work truck, or for someone who needs a vehicle and isn't fussy about it looking perfect, it would be good. It has a 2.9 Lt engine, 5 speed standard shift, so is pretty good on gas for a 4x4. All it needs, from what I have been told, is an oxygen sensor in the engine and all will be well. I think it would be a good buy for $800 for someone who can use it.
