thanks for the help but i lost the truck

I want to thank everyone who gave me advice on the truck i was buying. $1200 for a 1997 F250 7.3 with 137000mi. i was going to make my first payment friday i was letting my uncle keep it untill winter was over it was his plow truck.. i need to fix the frame and do body work sounded easy. he just calld me he broke the front axle plowing today. i cant afford to fix everything and add a front axle so he's selling it for parts ocally. thanks guys for all your great advice hopefully i find another one eventually.

for 1200 bux, you should buy it anyway....axles are easy to change, and you would have a whole truck full of low mile parts.......

if the frame wasnt already shot an needing repair along with some tranny issues and body work ontop of not being very mechainical and not having alot of money to dump into it it would be worth it for me. i was going to try my hand at the body work and the tranny seal. but it still has a long pause when you put it into gear. and once i patch the frame its fixed but its still in rough shape. i just fear it would cost me way to much to get it and make it road worthy its been a plow truck for a few years siting year round covered in salt it sat in the horse pasture all summer not moving for two summers now. i'm just tot he point that i'll put all this money and work minto it and still not have a reliable truck. its rather dissapointing.

Well fixing or replacing the d50 ttb is cheap an easy if you put it back in, or go to a d60 for most of 1k, but hopefully you could just save your money and swap into a nicer truck for more money

i paid her student loan off because they took her income tax she was unaware of it untill now so they took her 6000 and i put in 1000 to get it paid off and outta the way. she makes better money than me when she works she bought me my SCT for my 6.0 and has been trying to get me to let her buy me a .44mag and a .357 lever action rifle. i just wanna save and pay off the bills we have now so i can buy a nicer truck next year since this truck is just going to be outta my comfort work and value area.
