Hey I recognize that bridge at the Feather River Canyon! We should hook up sometime with some other 4X4's and you can show us some cool trails in the area. BTW we are gathering for a lunch in the Martinez area if you would like to join us. Here's the link.

That sounds great Steve.
Unfortunately I will be in SoCal at my bro in laws b'day.
Will give you a ring when we plan on doing some trailin'.
I work in SoCal so forgive me if it takes a while.
How are the mods going on your truck.
BTW you are right about the bridge.

No problem, call whenever you go.

Work on my truck is progressing slowly. I just fixed a T case leak and my front driveline so I can 4X4 again. I'm going to get my seat reupholstered next week to its original pattern and plans are in the works for a new engine next spring. I may also rebuild the transmission and T case while I'm at it.

You truck is looking better, especially your instrument cluster. Keep the photos coming!

Thanks.
Living in SoCal is actually good for the project because I have to go home and think about it for a while. Then I order parts and take'm back up, install, rinse and repeat.
That seems to be the way it is going.
I'm overjoyed about the instruments. Now I have to get after that dash pad and steering wheel.

So I'm sitting here with a day off and I'm going over the build sheet for the truck.
I'm trying to find the color code. I think the old guy replaced the hood (notice the off color in the pics). Also the hood has much more wear than any other part of the truck. I realize the hood takes a lot of abuse but the hard lines of this hood are different then the rest of the truck. So I'm thinking I want to order a little paint and paint the hood (and spot one or two other places).
So back to today. I'm trying to find the paint code. The door tag is completely faded and unreadable.
I'll include some pics of the build sheet and what I'll call a buck tag although it's not attached to the vehicle. I believe that the San Jose plant did not attach the tag (not sure about that) on certain vehicles. I found this tag in the owners manual in great shape. Is there a paint code on it?
In the paint section of the build sheet there are no notations except an R which may or may not be offset from the frame next to it. However it appears on the metal tag also.
If someone is familiar with these sheets or you know of reference material have a look and let me know.
Thanks in advance.

Sitting at work today minding my own business, checked my email and what pops up but pics of my '74. But something is different.
Hey, it's sitting level.
My brother was installing his rebuilt 44 under his Bronco with new springs. The old ones he threw under the front end of Smokey. Holy crud, it's lookin like a truck.
Kinda nice having a bro that wants to go wheelin really bad with your new ride.
I've said it once I'll say it again. Working on cars and trucks is the best way in the world to keep families together.
Here's pics of both rides.

sure looks like it could use more tire. not height, but width. maybe 31x10.50's on stock rims? i had 31x11's on my stock rims on my truck when it had 2.5" lift and it looked decent.

I was actually admiring the skinny tire look, reminds me of my grandads tires on his trucks; 2wd with skinny aggressive treads and he would drive it anywhere. Turbo, those are 2 sweet looking trucks and what beautiful countryside!

Edit, just saw the pix of Feather river bridge, wow, I see why you are there, what scenery! I'm turning green down here in the swamps! with envy lol

Thanks guys
I get to go back up there August 31st. I'll probably buy a new set of tires and take her out and try to break her. Really itchin to thrash a bit.
I've got a big box of parts to throw on. Mostly stock stuff just getting it back to ground zero.
After tires, I will swap out the front drums for discs and a new master cylinder.
And you're right bama it is beautiful up there.

NIce truck. I just bought a '77 150 LWB with the 351M and 4speed. 48,000 original miles on a Tennessee truck. I am the 3rd owner The original owner only pulled a cattle trainer between counties in NorthEast Tennessee. I am in the Marines as well so I can imagine in a few years I will probably be like Mr. Foley. Somebody will be aggravating me to sell my truck. My Dad picked up the truck for me just this week and I am due to rotate back to the East from 29 Palms in 5 days and then drive the truck form Tennessee to North Carolina. My Dad had an '80 150 with the same drivetrain and he says it drives like a new one just is rusty like an old one.
Great truck! Short beds liek that are rare.

Baby's getting a new pair of shoes.
Since the engine is still stock, just going with 33s
American eagles, with Hankook 33x12.50 Mudders.
Those should get it done.
