    Questions about insuring a 1987 AM General (Harder to get insured)

    I still think they are good trucks you just have to make a few modifications if you want to stay with an automatic transmission, if not an A2 would be the way to go.

    Questions about insuring a 1987 AM General (Harder to get insured)

    M35a3/ctis The CTIS should be removed and wheel bearings replaced with early style bearings. That system has special wheel bearings that are $800.00 each. The tires are an odd size and replacements are $1,500-$1,800.00 each. Should change to 14.5R20 tires or single 11.00R20 tires.
