i'd keep it and make a dune/mud/sand toy out of it. Chop the top off and add a cage. but that is me.

yeah it is perfect cause it is free! I know what you mean about the diesel project though. Been keeping an eye open for an OBS 4x4 to maybe make a pulling rig with.

Probably has a 727 torqflite trans. I say (and I know I'm going to get flamed for it) drop a 12V Cummins in it. Keith

why do people choose the 12v Cummins over the 24v?

i've heard that the 12vs are better for tuning/power, but i'm wondering why the later engine with more proprietry valve area isn't better.
