Re: The Snortin' bull

Welcome to the forum

That does look like a solid truck to work with. Looks like it needs a little 'pick me up' What are your plans for it?

Re: The Snortin' bull

The auto manufacture's keep part's very similar over the year's .To transfer in updated frt suspension into these truck's is not a huge problem.The gauge of metal in the newer crossmember and a arms is heavier also.
