    Welcome to CK5, you will find a ton of information and helpful hints from many of the great people here! Sounds like you have a great truck, just make sure you wallets deep, b/c it can be spendy once your hooked!

    no kidding, after megarun ( www.dfw-tx4wd.org ) were gonna get the body work done, its a long bed now but were gonna pull that off and put on a short bed for better departure angle... then trim the frame back to be flush with the end of the bed then hide a winch under there... so much stuff to do to the old trucks....

    That's better than too many of the trucks you see these days - the ones that are all show and NO go. Billet aluminum everything - but bone stock underneath.
