That is an option if we can get enough on the Go Fund Me for that, but can't get enough to get another rig with less miles.  Because of the cataclysmic explosion of the driveline that was powerful enough to crack an indestructible TH400 transmission in two places, we don't know if the engine is damaged, which has well over 160 thousand miles on it.  Our best bet is to replace it.
