    Turd made it home!

    The Defender market is insane. $100,000 trucks are not uncommon. https://ecdautodesign.com/ http://www.arkonik.com/ http://eastcoastrover.com/ I'm not into those at all. I like them ratty and leaf sprung. They have brought the series market up a bit though, just nothing like the defenders.

    I think I can get a cad file for a flat pack frame. You could cut a frame out on that fancy machine you have. Can dig up a body probably. Use whatever for drivetrain. Normally I wouldn't say that but probably not a big deal for you to fab mounts. 40s fit easy. ;-)

    No. Not even the tow.

    Original motor was in the back seat. Bonus truck with two engines! Dragged it out last night and springs were still flat.

    Rover hard top

    I still haven't dragged home that other rover I was hoping to tow...2.5 weeks ago. Tomorrow, I swear.

    Towing price check/recommendations

    That's so generous and pretty funny because I borrowed Dave's trailer a few winters ago! My truck was going 42 mph on 95 in Maine up the hills with his trailer and my truck on it. I felt really bad about doing that to my truck. I think 7klbs and my truck tow capacity is 5k. (Didn't really think it was that heavy and too late by the time I figured it out.) As an aside, your backyard was the most slippery thing I've ever had to walk across, including frozen ponds. Almost killed myself dropping the trailer off. I have the 100 mile tow option with AAA now. I think what I'm going to have to do is drive down and figure the uhaul thing out. Thank you for that offer. And lucky you to have time with no spouse and kid. I usually mow my lawn, bring stuff to the dump, clean the house, etc when mine are away.

    It's a 50 year old truck with the original motor in the back seat. I've never seen the vehicle except in pictures. In order to drive it up I'd need someone to drive me down there to get it. I'll make it more clear. I HAVE SO MANY ROVERS/PARTS THAT IF THIS COMES HOME AND GOES TO MY ROVER STASH MY WIFE WILL NEVER EVEN REALIZE/CARE I GOT ANOTHER ONE. If I have to go to RI, she will know.

    Not currently. Just purchased and didn't plan on doing that for a bit. Might be an option though as it's only 25 bucks for antique plate.

    crazy what gets censored here!
  14. I'm trying to get a truck from RI to NH (121 miles). Starter on truck doesn't work, so needs to be winched up a flatbed. Price quote I got was 375 + I need to get it on the guys flatbed. I can't do that since I'm in NH and truck is in RI. Was going to ask shop where it's at to try to get it on the flatbed but that's a doo-dee shoot. Truck (5k lbs) + trailer is too heavy for my truck to tow or I'd rent a uhaul trailer. Is that what I can expect to pay? Any flatbed guys someone could recommend? Thanks! Mark
