Overview

This was my high school truck that my dad and I built and I drove my senior year. The truck has seen its fair share of abuse. After high school I stripped it of its good parts for my Jimmy build, and it sat for a bit. My dad decided he was going to resurrect it and join my brother and I on the trail. 4 years ago we decided we were going to dive in and start what we thought was a decent winter build.

The goal was to get it running and driving then start working out bugs and finishing the build.

Well, we worked a long weekend over thanksgiving and lost all momentum.....

Then my dad and brother started their own lawn and landscape business and this project got put way back on the priority list.

So now that my dad is sick of riding shotgun on the trails, he has decided to let my buddy and I dive in. My dad is paying my buddy to do a lot of the work, but there is too much sentimental value in this truck for me not to help with it.

Restomod build for a late friend
Mild restoration build to use as a truck should be used.
The ultimate goal for this truck is tow duty/family camping trips/small offroad adventures.
