Re: How about some pics of 73-87 Long Beds?

I'm doing the same right now for my truck. I've found the front pillar and windshield parts gotta find the rear cab parts. I'm in the process of changing the interior colour too.

Re: How about some pics of 73-87 Long Beds?

Hey folks,
first time poster. This is the 78 c-10 Bonanza I'm picking up. Traded for my Harley. First step is to wash it, take the mudflaps and running boards off, then lower it 2/4. Think it would look cool lowered w/ a topper? 84k miles. 350/350.

Re: How about some pics of 73-87 Long Beds?

First welcome. I would ditch the topper. Get rid of those mirrors unless you are planning on pulling a camper. MO Everthing else sounds good.

Lovin this truck! Looks like it has the 7" van rally wheels on it...8" truck rally wheels will make a big difference.

That's about like me when I first got my '88. The piece of trim on the right rear quarter panel of the bed was falling off [mainly due to rust], and I didn't even mess with it. Was about 3 months after I got the truck I finally just took some self-tapping screws and put it back in place lol. That bed is history now anyway. It was so rusted I put a bed on from a '94 W/T 1500.

Man...I had the chance to get an old Bonanza when I was 15. All I had to do was yank the motor and trans from my '72 that didn't run anyway and was too tall for me to drive on the road. But like a moron, I didn't buy it. 400 bucks. Lol, I've got my '88 and '92 now that I love, but sometimes I still kick myself in the ass for it.

Cool Re: How about some pics of 73-87 Long Beds?

I am a new member of this web site and would like to share a few photos of my truck.
- 1987 Chev "Wrangler" 4X4 (Exclusive Canadian build truck)
- 350CID with TBI
- 4 speed Auto/Overdrive
- Full "A + B" Wrangler Option Package
- One of 455 built with the options package in red over black paint scheme.
- 2.5" lift in rear
- Extra leaf in front
- 33x10.5 rubber (not on truck when photos taken)

I have owned the truck since new. Fresh paint, no rust, all original equipment

Are there any other Wrangler owners out there? Sometimes hard finding good parts for "Wrangler"

Re: How about some pics of 73-87 Long Beds?

I've been lurking for a while now and think I've got this picture posting thing figured out... this is my 79-87 3/4T plow truck. It's a family project that's in it's 3rd build now (after the fire in January).

Jan of 12 the float stuck in the carb and she burned... The truck is back in MI now and being re-built AGAIN by my Dad & Brother.
