Just be patient; keep searching for transportation. Everything will work out; and, you'll be enjoying your truck, in no time.
I used U-ship for my R-120; and it worked out great.

Thanks!
I've used Uship for smaller vehicles also and it's been ok.

Maybe it is time to walk away before you have any more time and possibly money in this Old IHC.

Walk away?! Are you off your rocker? I just bought it.... I'm not losing my money and not getting a truck.

I may be "off my rocker" as you question, but, I have the same thought about your situation. Anyway, lots of luck with your money pit.

Dang dude. You went from helpful, suggesting where to get parts, etc to being a real downer. Why the sudden shift in attitude?

Re: My new R180

It was you that made the difference. Maybe in you circle of friends, "are you off your rocker?" is a term of endearment. It does not work with me. And I am not Dude. BTW, I have added you to my blocked list. Lots of luck with your project.

Re: My new R180

Yes one must be off their rocker to suggest I walk away from my truck and money, we're not all that rich. Dude/dudette whatever you want to go by most of us don't have genders listed on here.
What a great welcome back to this thread. Such lovely people!

Guy's, I think you should reel this back in. You are both members here that I respect and I think you let a little miscommunication go too far.

Re: My new R180

I guess I missed all the "fun", but here is a thought, everyone comes from a different perspective and different economic status. This seems to be "done" for now, I hope it stays that way.
As for the truck: hope that a hauler can come through for the agreed price, or you get your money on that back, then, consider the "drive it option" If it has good brakes, good fluids, That might be the only option other than More money for a different shipper. Go with that 10-12 thousand pound figure. Someone with a 1 ton and a good goose neck heavy trailer should still be able to do it for the amounts I said earlier. Me, personally, I am just stubborn enough to try driving it. Just my thoughts and comments

Re: My new R180

Looking to your truck pictures, I could see that your doors are the shorter windows style, the same of the L series trucks.
