Here is the truck as it currently sits. The front wheel was torn off. I have the parts waiting from a client who is a dealer. The only thing I need to buy is the wheel and tire. Sota Novakanes are kinda pricey but I can get them at cost. The Nitto trail grapplers are 37s and I can get that as well.

Start a go Fund me-- Id help bail out your truck -- you need a some wheels to get going buddy. I know you are not looking for pity or a hand out-- but I just spent the better part of an hour looking at your back posts where you offered help to others in need-- Well-- I'd say you are due some of your own medicine -- I'm in for 500 let me know paypal or go fund me -- I'm in.

I am uncomfortable doing this but I have to be willing to accept help. I have no expectations and i intend to return any help given, either in cash or in services.

That truck represents the old you. I would fix it, sell it, and start over with something different.

Iíll start it , 100 bucks to the go fund me !, Get the truck out before the shady wrecking/tow guy gets it

I donít know you from ďAdamĒ Brett , But have read plenty of your posts over the years ,
Everyone needs a rig to get back to
work and being productive .

Takes a lot to throw all that out there , all the best you and the family , Keep trucking foward everyday and keep us posted .

Come on guys most of us can kick in a few bucks so a guy at least gets a CHANCE to get his life straight , Whenís he actually trying . Itís only 2500 bucks total.

Not sure why you would say this, I believe otherwise. Best of luck to you OP, stay the course.

Matt, Craig and JD..... being in recovery is a new and powerful experience. I keep getting told that if I just set aside my will and ask my higher power to direct me that things will get better. I cannot help but believe that the generosity being shown here comes from the will of my higher power and as another byproduct of doing the right thing each day. All I have left is what the good lord provides and my ability to help others. Pay it backwards or pay it forwards the ripple effect will be long lasting.

If he was a new member then I might agree.

However, this guy has over 3,500 posts on there and has been helpful to others.

You can page through some of his posts and see if you really think he is scamming:
All his 3,500+ posts

I'm in... Good luck Brett! But I do agree... fix it up and sell it for as much as you can. Get something more "practical" (some hate that word!) for now and use the rest of the $ to keep the rest of your life recovery on the right track!

Not conned.....just came out of left field......and I know when I hit rock bottom 25 years ago, the last thing I "needed" was people giving me money for nothing.

Come on guys , Charges stacking @ 30 bucks day , letís at least get the truck out so it can be fixed and sold or used until then to get his ass to work of some sort .

I've been in a tight position as all of us has at some
point. And thanks to others I overcame and proved to those folks the help wasn't in vain .
