    When my 85 burned up, I was left without a truck for 4 long years. I was hurting. I wouldn't even buy any magazines, because it just made me want a truck even more. Then I stumbled apon some cash and a 74 Jimmy about a year ago, and I was back in the saddle. I have been planning all kinds of mods, and gathering pieces. I have everything I need for a 4" lift and 3/4 ton swap. Then just the other day my brother said that he would like to sell me his 88. I told him that I couldn't justify spending the money right now and left it at that. Then I told my wife about the conversation. She said "Why don't you buy that truck, and then we can use the 74 for a toy." :bow: I do believe that I have the coolest wife ever. Now I am the proud owner of a 74 Jimmy and an 88 Blazer.:laugh: :laugh: I am so excited, I could do backflips.

    I can't trade my wife. I like her a whole lot more than I like my trucks. Let me tell you that is saying something.
