    Hey there @Empty_Lord would you be looking for a standard bed for your 95? I'm thinking about going the flat bed route myself.

    Looking forward to your review of those LCA's. How long did it take for you to get em?

    Summer is still in full swing! High of 84* and that's be a typical low recently due to the rain we've been getting

    I’ve got a bed for the truck already. But if I actually make it out west soon to pickup another frame… another bed isn’t a bad thing

    Just 3 tons of fun!!!
    Finally got to drive the truck today. Got everything put back together. All the lights come on like they should, it dings the way it's supposed to ding, and it turned on...

    Which means I fixed the 3 wires I nicked when cutting the firewall, those were the only one I nicked, and I didn't melt any wires with any of the small fires we started in the cab when we were welding it back together...

    We're winnin!

    The 3.4 will always be a pig lol. You are in the same boat as me, I drive my GFs second gen and it makes me not miss my heavy pig. More power and more comfortable. But then I wheel my truck and I remember why I love it.
