    I bought this truck with the purpose to take it out and beat the living s**t out of it. Now as I plan to replace the cargo bed floors and add a possibly add a roll cage I think I find myself starting a restoration project. Any thoughts?:bow: :eek1: :rotfl: :thinking:

    It's hard to tell from the pic, but that rig looks pretty clean. I'm thinking if you are looking for a wheeler to pound, you could start out with something in much worse shape. You know it isn't very hard to find a rusty beat up Chevy these days!

    Restore it. I'm in the process of bringing my '90 K5 back to "like new" condition right now.
