    A local guy is selling a 89 1 ton 4X4 with no drive train. The body is excellent. It is a regular cab 8ft bed with the factory wheel flares. I can take the motor and trans from my 91 1500 and get a set of 1 ton springs. OR, I have a 350 with aboiut 200 miles on it sitting in the garage waiting for something to put it in...also have the trans.

    What do you think? He wants $350.
