My 82(start over)Build

I bought the truck Sept 17,1982 with 4 miles on it(3 came from my test drive) and my journey began.Over the past 30 yrs its been lifted to a few different heights,dbl shocks kits,Trusses and tire sizes from 36' to 44's.Now that I have a 2 Gen I've decided to start over with his Grandpa and turn him into an Expedition Rig.

As it sits today-22R W/40mm Weber 6'lift w/36's 5:71's w/detroit lockers




FUTURE PLANS
Suspenion
Duel Transfer
High Steer
Tube Bumpers
Bed Rack(if I keep the Stepside Bed)/or Tube bed
Propane or EFI (one day)


ALL SUGGESTIONS WELCOME

Guessing the stepside bed was some sort of kit or custom fab shop? I think it looks badass and wouldn't change it up much lol

The Stepside was made by company out michigan back in the early 90's,They only made beds for toyota's 79 thru 95.It's universal for short or long beds.all u had to do was swap the side around
