    picked this 80 shortbed up today. been looking for one of these for a long time. used to live in maine and I couldn't even find a bad one, so as soon as I got to texas I started looking. bodies banged up but the frame and running gear are mint! 75k miles. its been a deer hunting truck for a long time. as soon as I get a chance the brush guard and rear bumper thing are going. then i'm going to start working on making it reliable IMG_20130811_182242.jpg

    God I love old, banged up Toys still being used and rebuilt. Most of the ones in my neck of the woods were shipped south to be used by drug lords long ago.

    truck came with a spool and a seal kit for the front diff. a friend told me I wouldn't like it cuz it would steer funny going down the road. I thought if my hubs were unlocked that I wouldn't notice a difference. any insite?

    If the hubs are unlocked you won't be able to tell. When you lock the hubs the wheels will be more difficult to turn.

    thanks max 4. didn't do anything worthy of pics today. new plugs, wires, dist cap, rotor. and keep gutting and scrubbing interior. the smell of mouse shit is a bit much. plan on pulling the bed this weekend. want to paint frame and start sanding on the bed.

    i once welded mine... yes driving on the road with the hubs unlocked will be normal, but man is it a PITA offroad all the time and only helps sometimes. if its not selectable, or at least detroit/some fasion of partial locker i would never do it in the front again
