    The more i poke around at my jimmy, the more i realize what a rust bucket it is.

    Should i start trying to catch up to the problem, or should i let it go and start prepping a mid 90's s-10 single cab body and then tube the rear.

    I just dunno

    Looking back... I wish I had abandoned my rusty body long before I dropped all sorts of money and TIME into it. I couldn't be happier with what I have now.

    I think what im gonna start doing is beef up the frame, drivetrain and what not, and just prepare the running gear for offroad, and when the body falls off (Anyday now it seems) ill just get like a 86 or so s-10 body and throw the cab portion on there, tube the rear, yank the tags and have a pretty sweet trail rig!
