    how much would it cost aproximately and how much time you think my truck would spend at the dealer

    if i needed to replace my wiring harnesses due to bad grounds and mixing connections get the head lights and parking lights completely replaced buy 2 parking lights 2 head lights 2 reverse lights and 2 back up lights, remove and replace a transmission, either remove and replace a transfercase or fix multiple short circuits in it, replace all but 1 u joints in front and rear d-shaft


    my mom doesnt believe it would cost thousands of dollars because her friend told her it seems like it would be much cheaper, i need guesstimates to help convince her i got a friend with a ford f-250 with 20k miles on it for 5k and im trying to see wich one is cheaper (and its not the 6.0)

    when you say lights, do you mean the bulbs or the assembly?

    Most local dealers mark things up quite a bit. Call Champion Toyota, 800-327-2087, and ask for Shannon. He will hook you up with a solid prices.

    Is that a typo? A F-250 with 20k mis. for 5k? That sounds too good to be true.
