This is my daily driver/weekend wheeler build that I purchased from my Grandpa in 2002 or so. It was my first truck and stayed pretty much like the picture below until 2012 when I decided to take off the bed and clean up the rear frame that was starting to look pretty crappy.
A simple clean up the frame situation quickly escalated into a series of might as wells and has since turned into a full on rebuild project.
Things were dissasembled
Things were painted
Things were purchased
Last several years have sidelined the project due to moves/house projects/family/TDYs/deployments ect. but it's time to get back at it and start collecting the parts for the next phase of the project.
