Got the truck for $500, It has a 4.7L, Auto, 9.25" rear with lsd, HD Drums.The truck snapped a pole and pushed the front passenger cab corner in pretty good, enough that it needs another cab.Recently i've aquired a '99 with all the parts i need to fix the truck, right now im just focused on getting it road-worthy then i'll mod it later.
Anyways, here's when i first got it:
Laid down some rubber
Not much has changed since then, i installed new upper/lower balljoints, replaced the bent knuckle, and replaced the bent sway bar link and installed drilled rotors and ceramic pads. I plan on removing the dash because i have to swap the harness over to the other cab, if the weather ever lets up.
I found the wire for it, i think if its left open it may not trigger the light.Now i have most of the wires figured out, although theres one connector i have no clue what it is but the v6 harness didnt have a plug for it so im guessing its for a power option or the fancy roof console thingy.
Its not so much an island in the traditional sense, the gap between it and the mainland is about a mile and theres a causeway connecting us.
It was ranked the number one island destination in Canada and continental United States, and number three on the list of Top Ten Islands Overall
If the heater core is original, i suggest swapping in a new one($40) while you're there anyways.....be simple as you already have the dash out, mine leaked as well as many others.
Also, where are you pricing your parts? I had to buy a power steering hose for mine and it was about $25 at napa locally here in NB(working here). Was the return hose(half hard line, half rubber)..not sure if it was the same hose. If you need any other parts that are $$$, shoot me a pm and i'll price em up here or grab em at a scrap yard if they got em....i travel home to CB fairly often.
