I really want to do a solid axle swap I just don't have the money or the room to keep a donor truck around. And I don't want to get stuck with the rest of the truck. They are actually pretty hard to find out here. The toolbox is not on it anymore actually due to the bottom falling out. But the brand is free. I got it off craigslist for free and I actually used some roll on bedliner to cover it. I don't recommend it. I didn't take a lot of time preping the box but I did sand it down with some heavy grit sand paper. It didn't stick at all. I hauled some 2x4's and they hit the box and chipped right off. It was garbage but it only cost me $30 and I had a tool box that lasted about 6 months. I guess it was worth it.

thanks it was quite the project, but i had to take it apart and sand blast the rust off the bottom of the cab or there wouldn't of been much of it left come spring. As it was I had to replace the drivers side floor. wipe down the whole under side put three coats of rust paint on it then used ruberized under coating to seal it up, and that was just the cab.

Buddy the same goes to you. I see our trucks are the same year. You have a pretty baby too. That teal sticks out to me for some reason. There's another user on here with a Teal truck just like yours only a fleetside (4x4). Gorgeous trucks!



djx4yz, gorgeous truck man.

Thank you JohnT! I see from your photobucket you have some gorgeous trucks too - including two FlareSides. You obviously take good care of your vehicles. I like those roof lights on your red FlareSide.

thanks 6ClyBill I do love that colour I have already had the truck painted once and if it gets painted again it will be the same colour. the little guy beside the 4x4 is the same teal colour too. i got it painted that way so when I sell it I can put all the better fenders ,doors, etc. on the 4x4.
