I had a Mazda B2000. I think I could park it in the back of my superduty.

well i had the truck check out and the shop said that transfercase should be rebuilt and the front hubs should also be serviced as well, so now im stuck and i don't know if i wanna buy it then spend another 1000 or so so have it rebuilt? im guessing the problem leading to this was the cold Canadian winters with the abuse that the driver had put on this truck for all those winters but oh well...
