    My truck is in pieces, and not worth a photo at this time.

    The 1st pic is my truck when I parked it 2 years ago.

    the 2nd pic is the Bluegoose, and my truck will be simmilar when its done.

    Stay tuned for big progress over the weekend. I wanted it ready for Moab this weekend, but some major parts are not ready.:doah:

    I will spend the next 2 weeks getting it ready, then to Moab.

    Lots of progress since the last posts. Here are some updates since the beginning of the build.

    This is the way it looked today when I took it out. I have a major leak in the transmission that will need attention. This makes me mad because I just paid to have it rebuilt!

    a few more...

    The main reason I restored the truck is that i had a fair amount of rust, needed and engine overhaul, and just needed to be refreshed.
