Yes, other than the full wheel covers this one is staying stock as well.

Super nice ride - follow you on Insta and appreciate the fact you are keeping it as original as possible. Nice to see a truck in that shape still lurking out there.

Thanks, to me it's a no-brainer, to find something this stock and so rare, it would be a crime to alter it at all, but every time I post it.... I get all these comments how I should do this and that to it, mostly "bag it" "lower it" "cut the coils" ect.... lol I have 2 other topless 2 wheelers that are bagged.... #beentheredonethat

How cool is that?
This one of the best stories I've read on here and some time,

Re: Possibly the holy Grail...... '70 Jimmy Custom 2 Wd

It amazes me when trucks like that are still found. In my area there are very few unmolested trucks to be found.

Nice jimmy, I've got full covers on my jimmy too.
