    barley starts and the battery dosent charge at an idle or anything under 10 mph
    ac pulley fell of in the middle of the winter

    And plowing not even an inch in a flat parking lot the tranny started acting up I left and turned a corner and it felt like it was in neutral so I put it in 2 wd and.noticed it wasn't in 2 wd it was in 4 wd so I put it in park then back in drive and 2wd and it was in 3rd gear so I shut it off and turned it back on it worked fine drone 15 miles to.and from work went back to check.the parking down the street when I was about to leave it started to vibrate then jump.into gear even thou it was in first then driving home it did whatever it pleased at least I was following a bus that stop every 10 feet for 5 miles

    hoping i can make it through tommorows six inches:cry:

    Sounds like the truck needs to retire. It can reach a point where you need to say ENOUGH. no more parts and repairs it's DONE!

    If that truck were a horse you would have shot it by now. It's gonna cost 5 grand to replace everything you have listed along with the tranny. Time to do some thinking, snd figure out if the truck is worth it or not.
