What Makes Your Truck Unique?

This is not an original idea, I saw a similar thread over on the h.a.m.b., but I
and hopefully others, would like to know what makes your truck different than anyone else's?

What makes it unique or custom?

What are your personal touches that make the truck yours?

Feel free to post pictures.

yeah, i'd say thats unique. thats either a '48-53 tailgate, or someone cut the script off & attached it to the later gate. looks good, sure is something you dont see everyday

I was wondering why I never see these mirrors on other 10's. I have them on mine too and everytime I see any other similar trucks I think, why do they have those mirrors and I have these??


As for mine.. I think the interior seat setup. I haven't really seen any like it yet since I've been here on the forum and looking at everyone else's trucks.



Also, the stock replacement suspension stuff I always see for a 77 Chevy K10 note that it has single shocks in front and back.. mine has dual shock setups up front:




As a note, if anyone can correct me that they are NOT unique, that would be helpful. I'm still trying to learn everything that I have here.
