Hey Fellow Iowans....lets help a guy out. This is a listing on Ebay that is over. It was for a truck with a TON of extra parts. The opening bid was $1000 and no one bid on the truck. I have been talking with the gentleman selling this stuff. He said if the truck didn't sell he would sell the parts individualy. I got dibs on some of these parts including the bumpers, tool box and door, hood.....not sure exactly because I haven't seen all the stuff yet. I might go next week and take a look. If anyone is interested in the truck or the parts, lets get this stuff off of this guys hands. He needs to get rid of it, and I know you all need the parts, or the whole truck. Contact me by email if you are interested...I will get down there and check the stuff out.

Yes, He is in Urbandale. I know him..... not well, but did a fovor for him and he did one for me. I would say he's a straight-shooter. He won't be the cheapest, but will have decent to very good stuff. ( Unlike me, most of my stuff is more picking from parts trucks - except my daily driver which has very little rust).
Scratch that last note about "not the cheapest" I have seen him sell PRIME stuff.... and hey, it just costs $$$. He has a lot of stuff and it he will part with it ALL for $1000?!?!?! It will not be a waste of time to look, I'm sure you'll find something you like. He did sell me a steering column for a very good price.... and then gave me the manual gear box to go with it.
