Baja Breakdown Blues
You never know what's gonna happen in Baja, or in the States, for that matter. This is one of the reasons I prefer getting an old vehicle and building it up. If it's already old, ugly and built by me, I'm not too worried what it's gonna look like after I fix it. That's a nice truck, but think what it would cost to put it back like new. With a "'possum truck" you would pull everything back together with the Hi-Lift jack, hook up the (homebuilt, of course) onboard welder, and weld up some new spring mounts out of scrap metal you cut off another part of the truck. After all, you probably built the original spring mounts to begin with; or at least I did when I put 1-ton axles under my Wagoneer.
