Got this old 1997 Ford F150 4x4 off Purple Wave auction and the listing said just needs a "jump start" which was a total lie and when I got there at the sellers house it took two days to get it started. Once started I pulled it up in the yard from behind the barn and the exhausts were dragging on the ground. Back to the parts store to replace the coat hangers used to hold the exhausts with real hangers and straps. As I was under the truck I noticed the 4x4 shift motor was missing and it was manually forced into two wheel drive. All four tires were under 20 pounds of air and the seller refused to come out of the house and when I called said the title was in the glove box. On my 341 mile return trip home one Nerf bar fell off on the highway. Been working on it for a couple weeks and 4x4 works, needed brake drums, new tires, battery, and welded the exhaust up tight to the frame for four wheel beat downs. Nerf bars are history and threw some spark plugs at it. Next is upper and lower control arms and bushing. My just needs a "jump start" auction vehicle has been keeping me busy.
