    ebrake works, but not that well. I need to figure out how to adjust it.

    As for throwing something out, it would probably be my body. :D

    No Ronman. I'm going to abuse this truck and put it away wet, as they say. I really don't want to sink any money into it. Just enough to make it run.

    Got the Jeep titled today. I was going to do it earlier, but there was a ton of snowfall and I didn't get to work for a week. Wound up using the money to pay bills.

    Lol, don't feel too bad. The original AMC engine is long gone. The Chevy 250 6-cylinder engine is a bolt in engine swap and much more reliable.

    Good news everyone! The Postmaster said I'm hired! Well, sort of. They need to submit my paperwork back east to clear a background check, but that's just a formality. Woot!

    1978 AM General M35A2

    It has the multifuel engine as well, though I only burn diesel in it. It's not very fun replacing the filters on it and diesel is the cleanest.

    I should mention I got mine with 7,500 miles because the military is phasing out these trucks for a newer generation of vehicle. Given the M35 series truck was designed in the 1940's, it's probably...

    Keep it 2 wheel drive. Hopefully spend as little money as I have to in order to keep it running. It's going to be strictly a work vehicle until I can afford something better.
