Description: Just a basic, no-frills truck.
04/07/2014 Curb weight revised downward following a trip to the dump's scale.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: Conventional roof-high bed cap
06/08 - changed oil to Castrol Syntec full synth, also changed rearend lube to Syntec full synth 75/90 lube. Sounds and feels the same, but it's early in the tank, so we'll see how she does.
04/09 Added an analog vacuum gauge.
Flowmaster muffler, after the cheapie new muffler got blown WIDE OPEN by a backfire
05/2014 - added smoothie wheel discs after failing to finish the homemade ones for over a year. Ah well.

Planned Mods: Custom whaleback bed cap
Headlight covers
Partial grille block
Antenna shave
Mirror shave - replace with interior mirrors
Deeper airdam
Rear wheel fender skirts
Partial or full belly pan
No engine or tranny mods
A taller rear end ratio would be great for highway cruising - there's torque enough to slow the engine some.
