this didnt need all the fixing i did to it
i got it and i looked at it and went ok lets make it better
so i spent a lot of time on it and got lots of parts for free ar a deal and a half
not including labor wich was about 50-60 hours
i have spent 600-700 bucks
includint the 5th wheel hitch
so not bad
