    Just picked this up last week... not one you see everyday. Has the factory US market 2LT Turbo Diesel. Not beautiful, but certainly "rare".

    Thanks guys. I'm looking out for a rust free bed, as I would like to "restore" it. This thing is 100% stock and even has the window sticker in the glovebox, and was a 1 owner truck until February 2010 when my buddy bought it from the original owner. His wife about killed him because he used the tax refund so I bought it from him. His loss, my gain. :p

    Problem is, I posted an ad on CL for a bed, and when I tell people what I have they want to buy the truck instead of selling me a bed. :mad:

    Nice sounds like a good plan. I would start telling people that it has a gas motor in it. I would buy that thing in a second if i found one.

    I had an 88 toy and bought a new fiberglass bed fot it . the body lines matched perfectly and the inside of the bed was steel , tailgate was steel inside glass outside. it was a fewyears back but might still be able to get them. i had it for 2 years and sold the truck like a idiot but still c it from time 2 time bed still looks good. i believe i paid around 1000 to 1200 for it from a company called distinctive truck center in central ohio. dont know what u want to pay but it was well worth it.
