    whats up guys I got here my 87 Toy that I bought back in 08. Bought it basicly as a clunker. Engine was toast, seats were toast, carburator was toast and the paint and front bumper were as ungly as could be. Over the last 4 yrs or so I have dumped money into this truck like a mother F**cker. Hope you guys like it and let me know what you guys think!

    after that trip didnt go out for a while and still haven't. but I did make some changes. a few months back the grill fell of the truck and I had ran over it and it broke. so I looked on ebay and found an original black grill for an 86 so I got it and had the truck painted too. (first day I got it back).

    at this time I ditched the front bumper got a stock bumper on and had Deaver f55 springs put on. But I didnt have money at the time to do the whole shabang so I ran it like that for a few months.

    Did some work on the gas filler neck. Drilled out a perfect circle on the bedsides and poped the gas neck out.

    Nice truck and transformation man.
    The original pickups are the best platform to start with IMO.

    Here I dropped the truck down as much as I could since the deaver f55 is pretty low

    Pretty much it as of right now. Im redoing all the power steering stuff pump, box ect. and waiting on a hood scoop that ill be throwing on the hood for looks, annddd biggest of all ordered some new wheels today so hopefully will be getting them next week or so.

    And thanks for the comments guys. Originally started building this truck because it was what I was able to get straight out of high school. And hopefully in the near future ill be paiting the rest of the truck.
