Put gas in it, add oil as needed, drive it and live your life. If it quits buy a different vechile. At some point you have to know when to quit sticking money into it. I've went past that point a couple times myself unfortunately.

Have you ever thought about a used SUV or a minivan. You can get them cheaper than a 4wd truck. Just a thought, you could pull the back seats out if they don't fold flat and put a tarp down with some totes and you got a trapping vehicle. If you wall off the front from the back it might help with any bad smell.

If you had a truck and dump trailer and traveled a little. You could stay busy in Cedar Rapids hauling wood debris for a year or more. Worked there today and still a disaster from the derecho.

Dump trailer would run around $6000 and used pick up older one could get for $10,000- $12,000. People are always looking to pay to haul stuff away. There is a guy around here that all he does is go around and pick up scrap metal that people give him for FREE!!!!!! He drives a dodge dakota and a pickup box trailer that you would swear would fall apart. The guy is loaded.
