    Finally took a pic of the new '91. This could be considered the official "before" picture, since this was taken before I handed over the green. 3/4T, 350 TBI, rebuilt trans, full power options, center and overhead consoles, captains chairs...etc, etc. Picked it up for $2K LESS than book value. The running boards will be the first thing to go, much to my wife's dismay (that's why she has the new Tahoe), either by me or the first time it's off road! I'll post more pics later on of this truck and the '82 K10 Sub that is currently "for sale". The mods I have planned for this truck will be fairly conservative, considering this is my daily driver/kid hauler/trailer tower/off road vehicle. Maybe I should keep the '82??!!

    I'm hoping to trail it this weekend with the wife...hopefully I'll snag something on those running boards and have to say, "Damn, honey, now I HAVE to take them off!"

    The guy I bought it from works in a BAD industrial part of Phoenix. Those that live here know where I mean. The barbed wire is just a minor distraction to the thieves...lol.
