How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

We seen many pictures of the '67-'72 short beds so how about some of the '73-'87 short beds. Here is mine to start.
Also if you would like to show off your Longbeds that would also be great.

Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

Heres my 75 swb i just got. no motor or trans yet. will have mild 350 with th350.
i think a 3 inch chop top and 4 inch body drop dont know what the suspension drop is. tilt hood. got hit on pass side rear corner of bed and it shuved the bed into the back of the cab on that side. so im replacing the bed side and that section of the cab. shaved handles, marker lights, drip rail, will have gas door shaved.
