    I was going to sell this, but I played around in it this weekend and I can't get rid of it. This thing was my daily driver for over a year

    I am getting a new set of MileMarker manual locking hubs since I made a really dumb mistake on the drivers side when I installed them... The truck is a little rough, but I still love it. Let me know what you guys think.

    the interior looks pretty nice but it seems you have got a LOT of work ahead of you. IMO its a little dirty. body is straight and loos pretty good on rust. you gotta take care of that motor but overall keep it.

    thanks...

    I haven't washed it, but I did have to replace the passenger side fender last year. It is in black primer and keeping the truck dirty makes it all match(ha ha). I am going to get a Maaco paint job one of these days. The drivers side inner fenderwell is all rusted out with some major holes, and I may try to get that replaced in the next week or so. The mounts for the bed are shot also. How much does something like that usually cost to get repaired? The 2 bolts in the back are not attached to anything except rust. I wish I could do it myself, but I don't have the know-how to even begin to try. thanks again.
