    Hey Phil,
    Awhile back you asked about my rough country lift. Well I finally got it on!!! I got the 4" lift, boots and steering stabilizer for just under $800. It went on real easy except getting the studs out to put the steering block on. It looks really tall right now but it is just the bare frame. I'm 5'11" and the rear frame is up to the bottom of my ribs. Not real sure how it will ride it looks pretty stiff. Guess I'll see in a couple years.

    Hey! Thanks for taking the time to reply to my post. I do have a question about the dash. Is it a hard mod to replace the old radio with a current radio? Thanks!

    Well... everything on your list is here and for the most part excellent shape. Door panels are perfect with the exception of the PO used 4 drywall screws to hold them on. Holes were drilled and are small. The armrest have some wear but nothing significant. Dash pad is not cracked but has a slight dip in the center. I don't know what caused it. My bodyman said it could be fixed somehow. The seat cover is starting to show some slight splitting but foam feels really good and I would trade as I'm recovering it anyway. Truck is 79.
    I need to check the mirror...for some reason I think one might be missing the mirror but they are both there,good shape and complete.
    Let me know.

    Noticed your truck is green. I brought this truck up from Bloomington ,IN and I want to keep the bumpers,seat, exterior trim and all A/C parts. The cab appears to be rust free and the doghouse looks pretty clean. You would love the interior. Dash pad is not cracked. Grill has 2 small dents in passenger side and I'm pretty sure the grill insert is unbroken.

    Maybe you might want the whole truck for $800?

    Pics are in classifieds under 73-79 truck beds. I found a little more rust at the back of the bed so I'd be willing to take 450.00. I don't there is a chance you would be dissappointed.
