Do not sell your truck. Cool off and chill for a while. You have a ton of financial and sweat equity into it. You will never get your money back from it.

From my own experience, I had a a very, very, well built up 88 samurai. I went traveling, came back broke. I sold it! That was 10 years ago! I am still kicking myself. I loved that truck, even when I hated it or it broke.
Now what am I doing, researching SAC threads for my tacoma!
I had the the perfect truck once and I let it go.
Don't make the same mistake

Well I got it aligned today...it drives much much better. I got it up to 65 and no death wobble. I have to redo my air system though I blew an air line on the way back from the shop.

I am seriously considering trying to sell my truck and buying this. Fuel injected 454 th400 205case rockwell top loaders 44boggers. I am drooling over this one. Oh yeah the truck drives fine now just need to adjust my coil overs so that it sits level in the front.

Ok so I put my tires back on today. It does ok up to about 37 mph then from there to 55 the IT WOBBLES LIKE THE POS IT IS. However I did get play with it a little bit off road and it does exceptionally well. I drove it off about a five foot drop into a creek drove down to a sandbank turned around and drove back up the drop off almost without spinning a tire. It looks like it might be a 90% trailer truck. I dunno I might try adding some more caster and see what that does. Ill try and get a pic or two up in a little while.

How'd you balance your tires? And what is your caster at?

Tried using weights and a balancing machine but we chased it around the wheel and ended up putting 6oz of balancing beads in each tire. Caster is set at 5.5-6 degrees.
