I am from the Desert

I bought this truck in the San Bernardino Valley back in late 2011 it was a mess but minimal rust cab was pretty solid, had IL6 and a 3 speed with a $hitty floor shifter and a big ole hole in the floor for it. We got her running at the POs house so the transporter could drive it up on the trailer. A good friend and co worker lives in L A born in Mexico and whenever it was cold in the mornings in Moreno Valley(50-55 Degrees) he would be all bundled up with wool hat & gloves, i say to him Felipe YOU COLD and he would say well yes jeffe. I am from THE DESERT with his Mexican accent and big smile so thats when i decided i would put that on the tail gate with a caballero with a sombrero leaning against a Cactus get the pictureFelipe will get it ,,,So some pics and where we are so far .... i pulled the motor sold it repaired minor floor patches and it sat in the garage for almost 2 years while i was working on the Cheyenne LWB Basket Case thats Gino the PO nice guy it was a project he bought for his son and him to bond.... they gave up I thought he was gonna pass out when my buddy and I 2nd pic got it running in about a half hour Gino had been trying for a year, deal was already done trailer was coming to get her

Re: I am from the Desert

What are your plans for lowering the pickup, I'm guessing it will lay down on the rear axle when you air it out, do you plan on installing C-notch kit?

i have not decided to notch or not to notch... i purchased a early classic 4-6 drop kit and then bought the air bags all from board members , then decided to put the airbags in for towing purposes i have not dropped the front yet and i purchased another SWB frame that I'm thinking of using the complete kit on keeping it static for another build... long answer but......thats what I'm thinking ,thanks for asking
