mine looked like yours except it was 2wd. 3" body lift, 1 ton front springs, 33/12.50/15 tires. kept it 15 years. rust from the firewall finally did it in when both door rockers were gone after 300K miles.
Yea at first I did not wrap the lines and I'm glad I did now. Funny my speedometer just rolled over 300k and it just stopped working.

On another note it was 7 degrees at my buddies in the morning started great, adjusted the choke before I went up glad I did. Some people question why I would take this truck and get it all dirty. I tell them its a truck and I'm not afraid to use it as one! lol
