So I have a couple questions that I don't know if anyone would have the answers to here but here goes.
1. The easier of the 2 is how would I get the gear ratio for my axles in front and back. I plan on going from 35" to 46" tires and I hear a lot that I am most likely going to have to change the gear ratio. I have Dana 60 front and rear axles.
2. This one is a doozy.

TL;DR : 4 years after buying truck trying to register it in different state than bought. How much is it gonna cost and how am I gonna do it?

So I am an Armyfag and so, before basic I married a chick like an idiot and we moved from California to Arizona with my brother. During basic we had that holiday exodus shit and I got to go home on leave. I bought a truck (pic related). This was December 2012. My now ex wife was supposed to register the truck. When I got out of basic I learned that she had moved back to California and never had got my truck registered. She cheated on me (big surprise) and I told her I wanted to get a divorce. I was then stationed in Germany for 3 years. One summer leave I went to AZ and drove the truck on a temp registration to California. Another year passed and I deployed. Spent 8k of my deployment money on upgrades for my truck and saving to PCS to Fort Lewis, WA. Divorced the chick when I got home because she had been banging everyone, and actually had got pregnant when I was deployed, and realized that the truck problem was going to be much bigger than anticipated.

When I bought the truck I bought it from the parents of the guy selling it. I don't have a POA from him to them for them to sell it to me. I bought it with a cashier's check and the lien got put in to Navy Federal. BUT because the POA was never obtained I couldn't get a new title with navy federal being the lien holder. So I have the original title, with his credit agency being the lien holder.


I paid 1000 for some dudes my shady ass godfather vetted to install all the parts I bought for my truck using deployment money. I had 1500$ left and 3 days to drive from Bakersfield, California to JBLM, WA. No problem right? Wrong.
About 200 miles outside of Bakersfield, got death wobbles. Turns out they barely tightened the control arm 1 thread and if we hadn't have stopped, It probably would have snapped causing a rollover and probably death. We (my brother decided to leave shithole Bakersfield and go with me to Lewis) had it towed to a local tweaker mechanic and he welded the control arm because there was no way to repair as well as aligned the wheels (I had new tires and wheels put on by the fucking chodes who put on all my gear and had them aligned right after the lift kit and everything else was put on).
That cost 1000 bucks, fuel was expected to cost 500 on the high end and 200 bucks for food. And I had 7 days till I got paid again. So we get back on the road and everything seems like it's going well. We get to near Oregon and it start acting weird. Turns out the fuel filter was fucked up somehow. Replaced that and had no problems for another 300 miles then.. It starts losing power.

I unplug everything and shits good. About 25 miles outside of base death wobbles are back and it's so bad we almost run into a big rig. We pull of the side of the highway and a state trooper gives us escort to a parking lot about 2 miles down the road. I have a tow truck pick us up and drive us to base. Got to the auto skills center (basically a mechanic shop you can work on your own car for cheap, they have every tool you can think of, hydraulic lifts, etc) and brother found that they installed everything wrong (my brother was better at mechanical stuff than me until I started really working on it all the time). So I had it sit there because now my 1000$ extra money was 2500$ in the hole from all the tow trucks, parts, and repairs I had done along the way. About a month later I married a chick I thought I got pregnant on pcs leave after the divorce like "good job Dan man", turns out it wasn't my kid. But in the time it took for me to find out it wasn't mine, I had bought her a car, bought a bunch of baby shit and now I was drowning in bills because she was supposed to start working and shit. Divorced her. Blah blah blah. Finally saved enough money to pay off the truck, and get it to my house. Question is: how the FUCK do I register it. The guy is no where to be found. It's not reported stolen so as far as I know he is not aware that nothing went through. Also How much is it gonna cost?

Barter the truck for a bicycle that you can afford to repair. Let someone else deal with figuring out how to register it.
>>
Auto would be for the first question, but wouldn't this be under transportation because of the nature? Like its about registration of a vehicle with extraordinary circumstances.
