thats usually how it goes my girlfriend thinks im crazy never buying a truck or car thats newer then 95 and cost more then $1000. i don't like payments and i like the simplicity of the older trucks.
and for an update well the past few days ive been tinkering on the truck. i replaced the fuel filter and o2 sensor oil change and started putting the front end together.i also put a volt, oil pressure, and temp gauge set in to keep an eye on the truck vitals. on my to do list as of now is:
1. patch the floor
2.replace the computer controlled carb and tfi distributor with a normal carb and dura spark ignition.
3.full belly pan
4. lower it
5.put a radio in
6. convert the truck to manual steering
7.swap in a 5 speed and aluminum drive shaft
8.build a tonneau cover
9.remove any unnecessary weight
10.replace all fluids with synthetic
11.build a custom intake
12.upgrade all the power cables and grounds to 2 gauge wire
