    looks good to me, does it already have a little lift on it? or are the tires just on the small side?

    IMO, id lose some of those foo-foo things on it, like the bug shield and the handles on the cab, and them nerf bars, but thats just my Taste ;P

    all in all looks like you got a good deal.

    <font color="green">The tires are only 31x10.5 which I will go up to 33x12.5 for now cause it will be a daily driver for awhile...Does have a four inch lift in it already...Unfortunately blocks in the rear for now until I do the shackle flip, the bug shield was the first thing taken off right after the pics were taken, and the nerf bars were next to be taken off...unfortunately I have to leave the handles on the cab cause that is the only way for me to get in...Sucks being 5'4...But hey can only do so much at a time...

    Already cleaned the diffs and put new gear oil in it, had to change the transfer case seal, changed the trans filter and put synthetic atf in it,all filters have been done, still have to put a new heater core in it and go with a new rad and thermostat while I am at it...So damn nice to have my own personal four bay shop with a lift to do all my work... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    man, those pics are like a walk down memory lane. i was lookin at the pics and thinkin', "wow, I remember when my rig had an interior!" /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif Stock fender trim, folding rear seat, 31s, slider windows, whew!!! Looks like a good place to start, make sure when you do upgrades you take pics all along the way... I, personally, have a bad habit of forgetting to do that. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    $1300 for that 90'? I say you got a damn good deal, no matter how many miles she's got. Anyway, nice truck, she's definitely got potential.
