How I got it on January 5th at 143,250 miles:

Truck was originally brown but has since been repainted




Suspension appears completely stock but it sits a tad higher with 32" tires

The worst part of the truck


Pretty rough. Paintbrushed door panels, duct-tape deluxe seat, cracked dash, etc. LMC Truck has me covered though

Dusty but well running 302ci (5.0L) V8


It's an original A/C truck but if you notice, the belt was removed. Compressor is likely shot

Definitely seen some trails and mud but I don't think it was just bogged and sank every weekend.


Does have some rust but nothing catastrophic. Frame is OK, leaf springs are fine, it's all there just needs a good cleaning.

It's not roadworthy just yet. Needs a tag and insurance of course, a rear tire leaks but it's manageable, "needs a heater core and wheel bearings", lots of steering slack, cluster doesn't light up but other lights do, and finally I have brake lights but no tailights??
All in all, I got a deal for my intentions with it. A running and driving 4x4 with 143K, has yet to leak or burn oil nor coolant, for $800.

I haven't even had it a week but of course I've got hundreds of little ideas!
ˇ Getting it legal and reliable
ˇ Take it to my trusted shop and having them check out/service the trans, trans case and differentials
ˇ Gotta get the interior back right, LMC is gonna love me..
ˇ An exhaust, got some research to do there
ˇ Further down the road, a mild lift and 33s likely
ˇ Assuming the powertrain holds up, having it repainted a good chocolate brown or hunter green

I really like the truck! I wanted to buy one real similar, only things different were the tires color, and motor.

Can't wait to see more updates!
