I drove the M1009 home last night... into work today. Really liking it. Very good road manners and really not all that loud on the highway. Really has the diesel engine noise at idle... pretty loud. But once up to speed, not that bad.
Yeah, you can pick up a duece for $3500 or so, bob the back end and go with like 46" Michelins. Very useful truck at that point.

are there many of them down there? decent prices?

I had considered buying one a couple years ago for the clean body it had, I really wish I had bought it and transfered the 400 from the jimmy into it, I'm getting affraid to drive the jimmy anymore for fear of falling thru the floor.

Yes, I got it down here in SC.

This is the only one I have seen down here.

But, everything is so clean down here... it makes me sick. I dont think I will ever buy another used car from Michigan again.

Everything was running so good, I didnt even check the air filter until today. It was pretty damn dirty.
Put a new one in... wow, what a difference!!! Feels like I just got 50hp! It must have really been starving for air.

Hopefully start in on the bed liner tomorrow after work, permitting that the guy is ready for me.
