Now that we lost 3 days of topics I don't know what to use. The Ford or the Chevy? Man I am so lost now. ;D

Hilarious! I own a T100 (Tundra precursor) with 223K miles on it, and a rough life behind it. The only broken part on the whole truck is a tailgate hinge :)

Someone on another forum bought a ten-speed Roadranger sight unseen, then when he went to collect it he found it was attached to a 35'-long metal thing, complete with wheels, and an engine, and seats (lots of them).   Easy, he drove his new transmission home.   Now he doesn't want to separate his new transmission from the 6N71 it's attached to, or from the rest of the bus.
