I bought this truck in this condition for the 4.0 and M5OD. How it got wrecked I do not know.

There was not a straight panel on it EXCEPT the pass side door, door frame, and ext cab part. I could stick my arm through the hole in the drivers side floor board.

So I had it towed home, and being that the front end was mangled, I cut it off to gain access to the motor and trans.

Motor and trans were removed. I was waiting on a friend to come get the carcass, and a “Karen” neighbor called the city. Since I owned the vehicle (got a title when I bought it), and I clearly wasn’t driving it with no tag or insurance, there wasn’t anything that could be done really.

So I started cutting it up.

Anyone need a good 2wd engine crossmember? (You can see some of the frame damage!!)

You want the bed front?

Otherwise it gets scrapped.

nah, just having fun with your post.
here in the rust belt almost any good piece of metal gets us excited.
now that it's been mentioned maybe someone closer to you may speak up.

how's "Karen" taking the progress?

I work in fuel tanks for a living. Don't judge me!
I hope you are making all kinds or racket cutting up that truck just to mess with Karen. With in the legal ordinance limits, of course...

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Looks like yellow jumper cables hanging off the seat.

Bet your ass I am! I have 7 days. And I’m making as much noise as possible.

Also, I parked my truck at the top of the yard, and am piling all the scrap into it.

I have 7 days to mess with Karen. I’m enjoying every single one of them!!!

Gotta love neighbors! Years ago I bought a wrecked 87 mustang. It drove but was pretty beat. I drove it home the night I bought it, parked it behind my house and the next morning at 5am my neighbor called my parents telling them I got in a really bad accident. They showed up at my place 20 minutes later worried about me. After explaining the deal, she called the police to report I was in possession of a stolen vehicle because she didn’t wanna see the eyesore. I will never understand people...I kept a clean mowed yard, had a nice house, kept the car covered so it couldn’t be seen (after the first night) and it was never good enough.
