Gotta New Truck!

Cut my way into & drug this baby home last Saturday. Got a 5.7 TBI & 4 speed in it. I traded for this several yrs ago but I think it has sat too long. Bed floor is rotten now & fuel tanks have no bottoms! Cab is very well / good seats & looks like a perfect front cap. Has aftermarket AC in the dash. Prolly just part it out but was an ever day driver when it was set up.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

Re: Gotta New Truck!

I gotta M1008 & a 4" lift & some 35's on aluminum wheels, a person could build a BIG & LONG truck outta that stuff!
But I got too much already so it's not for me.

Re: Gotta New Truck!

Take the hood off and blow it out with a backpack blower.
