    First items to fix
    * rear differential
    * exhaust
    * front drive shaft reisntall

    this is a 4x4 truck, but because the front drive shaft is missing its really a 4x4-2 = 4x2

    driveshaft dropped

    .


    but before the driveshaft dropped, a few minor things happened first

    1. owner told me to have it towed to my house because the rear differential is bad....very bad
    2. I didn't pay any attention
    3. closed deal on the truck, registered the truck, got insurance and I was on my way home and drive the truck home
    4. after just 2 miles, the rear differential ceased
    5. I step on the gas and I said to myself "whats wrong with this thing"
    6. engine is more powerful than the bolts securing the driveshaft and ...ping...bolts fly off the driveshaft and the driveshaft falls flat to the ground

    .
    They are just an extra leaf spring you add to the rear on each side.. will carry more weight and w/o bottoming out
    Does make the back end higher and stiffer but you can get a leveling kit(just a aluminum spacer that goes on the coils in front)

    I DONT KNOW if these are the correct ones just an example are for 1500 ram the front leveling kit comes in more sizes too and there is also a long or a short leaf spring kit

    I will def look into this, and be sure the orig owner hasn't put one already

    the reason I say this is because this new-to-me truck already has a tall stance


    I actually wanted to buy this other truck just for its looks, and very low to the ground (rear wheel drive, which turned the deal)
