    Man, i think it looks good.. that rust will buff out, and its a wheeler any way right? I love the tires too, i have a set of 33 ssr, and they are great if you plan to do a lot of street driving like i do.

    At this point I'm trying to decide on whether to just not worry about the body and make it a full trail truck, or if I should fix the inside/interior and make it nice enough to drive in case my daily driver went down or whatever.

    Get it fixed up to be comfortable on the road for those longer trips to the trail unless you have a tow rig.
