The little 6.2 Detroit? Not a powerhouse but it's easy on fuel. That's a good trade. Truck looks nice.

...... Lol ,.... strawberries & pistachios clash,.... :smile: silvers good,.... im thinking.... yes, no big power, on the 6.2L . Better torque & fuel economy than the burb,... and not so much Heat under the hood. nothing a turbo wouldn't spruce up,.... hmmmmm.

.... :thumbup:...... well, to any gearhead.... same scenario as a snocat, I guess.... it certainly deters the masses , in such a circumstance.... lowers the price,.. ( except tuckers..lol),... and opens up the possibilities,.... like,...'' well it needed something to update/modify/ improve, etc... because it was missing something....'' or....''well, half the work has already been started or done...'' . ( in all reality; I like to revive old iron... )......

Looks like you could use a .223 in the cab to control something else . . .! With all of the rain the other night I figured your lake might just refill!
