    I was just about to say, did you get that from Jerry? lol

    being in the 60 club is cool, even if the truck doesnt even run.

    how much did you get it for, if you dont mind me being nosy?

    Orange - Keep looking, one will pop up. I have been kind of looking for a while! Passed on a few I shouldn't have... Lost one that was around $225 and then another around $300... But I just didn't get in a hurry and waited. My buddy called me with this Saturday and I told him SOLD! :)

    Dark - LOL.. Nah, I'll be making one with a DIY4x cover ring! :thumb:

    84 GMC - It's going under my 91 Toyota..
    Here's a link to the build-up: LINK

    Atho - Ya, there are good deals in this area if you keep an eye out.. Or have friends who are D60 whores!! ;)

    Oh yeah...I like to gloat about how I got my SRW Dodge 60 for $150 from the local JY, that Jerry bought his DRW 60 from too (which I thought you had bought off him). We joke about how the guy there just doesn't know what they're worth. Heck, mine had already been pulled from the truck and everything! Just looks like its been under the Atlantic for about 20 yrs :(
