Personally I'd just replace the truck. By the time you buy the other truck, swap out the engine and transmission, then attend to any issues that this truck has you can buy a newer truck with less miles. Probably for the same amount of money. To me it isn't worth it. HTH. -Jim

Either sell in parts and get a whole new truck or shop for a vehicle in a dry state. CA., AZ., NV. I would get a whole new truck unless you like projects.
