    Well, I sold my '06 and bought me a '91. Got out of my payments and with the extra money I paid cash for this old pickup. The bed is pretty rusted but the rest of the truck is in really good condition for being 21 years old. Best part is that it only has 137,000 original miles on it and is a two owner truck. Don't need much other than a few odds and ins. Hope I did good on this buy!! Never have bought a truck this old. Let me know what you think.

    Thanks guys! I'm looking for parts like a dome light lens cover, chrome trim around windshield, and other basic parts and pieces like that. Where would I go to find that on the internet. I've searched the web, e-bay, craigslist, and all the other places I could think of. I need some advice please!!

    Congrats on the truck. Looks good! Keep an eye on Craigslist for parts. I have a 92 and had to buy some stuff at the dealership because the junk yards were pretty picked over.

    My first truck was a red '92 same config. 270,000 miles and started like a top. Drunk Subaru t-boned me back in 2003 and she limped home 200 miles. I was so bent when they told me it was totaled (frame.) Will be watching.
