    Nice rig. If you don't mind me asking, how much did that exhaust set you back? I'm looking to do the same thing to my truck.

    Thanks for all the comments !

    I live in a fairly rural part of Michigan in between Lansing and Detroit and there's a local guy that does exhausts out of his pole barn. He has a pipe bender and everything. He charged me 350$ total for the install (parts and everything). We don't smog here so no cats !

    Living in the rust belt as we do....I flew all the way to Oklahoma for this truck and drove it home. I will not drive it in the winter up here.
    You can get underneath this thing and start undoing bolts without PB Blaster or anything.

    Very nice looking truck. Did you have the paint done at a shop, or do it yourself?

    To everyone else, lets not start talking about rust...it makes me sad. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Truthfully, I've learned to "accept" rust and just plan on buying a 'burb from the south in a couple years and swapping stuff over. That won't happen until my truck can sit for the salty winters and isn't needed for plowing anymore.

    You've done a nice job on that Sub. I had an 88 same color as yours was. Same problems with paint, but did exactly as you did, went to a solid dark blue and really liked it. Also did the 33" tires, 4" lift and 513 Cad engine. Wished I had gone with a BBC instead though. Love those Subs, lots of room and a great ride. Nice seats and console too.

    that's a really nice looking sub. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    personally i would have stuck with the original paint. i liked the stripe. repainted the hood though.

    got plans for lockers, winchs, lights, hi-lift?? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    judging by the interior (no offence --->) it doesn't look like you're going to use this to hard off road.

    it's a cool sub though, cause when you don't have a vehicle everyone else's starts to look good.
