just picked up this project for the low price of free its a 2.9 with a 5 speed and some good ol 4x4. it needs a new ring gear and the fuel lines redone alos iso of a grill i got it to run on ether but it needs more to run on its own its got dual tanks witch thats cool and some other features include surface rust, one headlight, bent tailgate, "coustom" father time drag slicks withs air vents in the sides, and a bed and cab full if cherry seeds. i call it cousin Eddy.

The previous owners tore 'em up, then parked 'em. Too much of that's around. I can understand a work truck being beat up and abused/neglected, but someone's own private truck?

At least you have an interesting project. Keep us posted on your progress fixing it.
