    310k miles on it, my son (19) took it just now to Wendy's to get a hamburger and he heard like metal clanking and you couldn't steer the car turned on or off. I think the drive shaft is gone.

    My poor workhorse OJ ride.

    It looks like it is still in great shape from the outside.

    it is on the inside too, but the steering has been very loose lately and I told hub to put it in the shop but he said, no I just want it to die then he'll put a new engine in it. Thank goodness my son was at the drive thru window when this happened. He called home to say he cannot move the truck..it's stuck at the window...Wendy's isn't happy he said. LOL

    I'm sure it can be fixed.

    I need my truck...I use it to haul all kind of stuff...and it's spring time...the time I most need it. It figures Murphy's Law!

    April 14, 2009 the day it died.

    If your son, god forbid, needed a new heart, would you just give up?

    I think not!

    Get the new engine, transmission, drive shaft, whatever, and keep your "child" alive!

    I hear you, he shouldn't have been driving that truck! It's being towed now to our house. We can fix the driveshaft, which that is what it is.
