Sounds like he takes care of you. The way I would look at it is its gonna cost you 1500 but you will have a brand new engine / transmission. is the additional $4500 for new worth the new suspension (that your going to have to have reset back to your liking) and frame/ geometry improvements if any worth that much. Too be honest I dont know if they have even changed anything bewteen years its just how I would break it down
On the plains of hesitation lie the blackened bones of countless millions who at the dawn of victory lay down to rest, and in resting died.
Go forth and be a force of the awesome!
