as of today i have a shit ton of stuff ordered and ill post pics as they arrive... still havnt decided to patch the bed, buy a new bed, or build a rock bed... its all up in the air as of now... this is going to be a daily driver plus trail/camping/fishing truck.... options are unlimited at this point. ive got a good lead on a used tube bender to make sliders, bumpers, and other stuff, definatly gonna have a front winch mount with d-rings front and rear and a beefy hitch on the rear.
at this point im leaning towards getting another bed and cutting it even with the rear frame/shackle mounts...??? idk all input is welcome...!!!

so as they say..... LET THE FUN BEGIN...!!!

the frame appears to be good and solid, the bed had a plastic liner at somepoint and held water really bad.....

first mod to help subside the rust was to remove those ugly chrome fender and quarter panel trim pieces... def, looks better with out them on there.
should be going in the next couple of days to get my motor from the machine shop, its a 2.7 bored .20 over, nothing major. basically just needed bored to fix the cylinder holes.
rebuild kit and everything is already here and waiting. only things i need to buy are thermostat and air filter.... i hate the waiting part, i wanna get it built and in there...!!!

BUMP...! LOL cuz i need some insperation.... cant get my motor from the machine shop untill the ice melts now....
but if i can get it inside i can do the steering rack bushings and maybe the lift...
on a side note is it easier to do the steering bushings with motor out or does it even make a difference...???

so i got a green bed today thats wrecked in the back and has all the patches i need to fix my bed, so im gonna patch it up, do the roll in bed liner real thick and use the plastic liner thats in the new bed... that aught to give me some good protection...
also i checked out the frame real good today and yesterday and its solid as a rock...!!!
the skid plates and the bed just wanted to be stubborn and decided to rust i guess...

stay tuned more to come...!!!

just to clear something up the bedliner is going on the inside of the bed, the quarters are gonna be patched in , smoothed out , and at some point the whole trucks getting painted... ive been painting cars and bikes ever since high school and worked at a local body shop for a few years as there painter so i think i got that part covered... im thinking the same green as the truck is now but in semi-gloss or olive drab...??? probably do the olive drab because ive always wanted a truck that color.....
