    Just traded my Regal for a solid 84 1/2 ton 4x4! Minimal rust, cool old truck. Has a V8 (not sure yet if it's a 305 or 350, don't really care), 700r4, 208 case. The bad: only has 4lo (probably shift fork problems), needs a gas tank (pinhole in the bottom), needs exhaust, could use tires. I am a mechanic so I'll be wrenching on it myself, will keep you guys posted on the progress... Super excited!!

    Yeah, the guy I got it from said he was driving and it popped into neutral, and then he could only get 4 lo. I've confirmed that the transfer case has 4lo, neutral, neutral, and neutral...

    Yeah, it may not look like much, but it's solid! Not gonna do a full restoration, just gonna fix the mechanical stuff and keep the "work truck" vibe going...
