    Cool! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Now on a serious note: Even if you try to do anything to it as far as getting it to run, etc., you probably arent gonna have much luck since most of the seals, rubber parts, etc., are probably gonna be cracked and shot. I can't say the motor will be good after sitting that long but just take it easy at first and try to turn it over by hand rather than key. Check all the fluids, etc., too.

    Another idea instead of "butchering" it to make it an off road machine would be to completely restore the truck to showroom condition and keep it that way. Heck, I would not even drive the thing since I would rather keep the mileage intact. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Nothing says it like "YOWZA!" when someone sees the odometer is correct.

    Then there is the option of putting it up on eBay and letting a classic collector bid $20,000 for it. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif Can you say...."extra money for parts for the off road rig?" /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    But all this was just my opinion. I still wouldnt do anything to the truck since I would like to see it keep its low miles. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
