No, it was a $37k K3500 at one time, a 96, and it had beautiful straight sheet metal that I just loved cutting up, oh I can't get enough of it /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

Uh, cause I like to, uh, 4 wheel, and the places I go, uh, need more clearance and stuff and junk... It's not a poser street truck /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

Sheetmetal just gets in the way, I'm suprised I left as much as I did... The bed sides come off for the trail, they are just on to keep me somewhat legal on road. And I lub my new departure angle.

Looks great, very clean job! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

It doesn't matter what you cut up, if it's not a complete rust bucket, people will whine and complain. You wouldn't believe the hate mail I got for cutting up a "perfectly good, restoreable M1008 CUCV". /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif I even had people begging me not to cut my clean, rust free frame after the body was gone.

What do you want, crew cab JP style or in 5 years a busted ass contractors truck thats scratched and dented to hell and trashed? Do you wan't to restore that thing after you peel all the tar and cement off of it?

Do you want KJ's dovetailed K5 or some loser 16 year old driving a K5 back and forth to school until it falls apart, he's too inept to fix it and has no money to have someone else fix it, so it goes to the crusher for $15 in scrap.

Most of the "classics" that get "restored" are turned into half assed show trucks that populate ebay and get passed around like a bad colecovision that no one can bear to throw away but no one really cares about.

Yeah lets save everything, restore it all, and chuck it in a garage and never drive it to preserve it. Oh yeah lets close all off road trails fence off the outdoors and look at it from a distance.

No one should bitch about anyones rigs, especially when they come out like Jason's and Jethro's
