    Well it's been a hell of a week.

    We hired a new guy, and the boss on his first day ever solo driving left him alone in our shit yard to park, because "I thought someone would help him".

    Yeah, that's fun.

    And me fingering a hole for your satisfaction.

    Total damages are fender, grill, grill support, turn signal and vacuum chamber.

    Boss suggested insurance and push for total loss. He doesn't really get me.

    After I stripped it down I was price checking wreckers for a front end, figured **** it the boss is paying and go for an updated front clip swap. He told me about a truck at his work. A salesman at his company, had an engine fire on the way to work one day, sat for almost three years and had junkies steal some shit.

    I get you snuff. I mean...did your boss not understand your love for your truck when you were figerbanging her? Seems like an easy assessment.

    Got it home, traded a scrap van for half the tow cost.

    Assessment is the truck is much more whole than I was lead to believe.

    Currently cut battery cables, battery is dead, drilled gas tank (self tapping screw has temp filled the hole), and missing one cat. Nice clean cut as well.

    Edit - **** me, added power and it started right up.

    More photo spam.

    Ground gave up under the ramps so I had to get my real supports.

    One of these costs more than what I paid for the truck.

    Could use a hell of a detailing from sitting.

    Rears look like nobody has ever sat in them.

    '98 EB - Air suspension ditched for 2 1/2" Spacer & TT, 35x12.50x17.
    Wheels, bumpers, winch and roof rack are all on the list.

    I truly believe these trucks should have left the factory in similar set up.
