I decided i needed a project and got this truck. I did a ton of work last summer, pretty much spent the whole summer working on it . . . to which the wife was not happy. Mechanically it is squared away and is my daily driver, but the body has some rough spots. So this would be a good fun daily driver or a good candidate for a restoration project given the drivetrain is all set up and ready to go. Anyway, my wife hates climbing in . . . I have to help her in . . . and we don't have room for our dogs . . . so i need something a little more practical. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions, and I will entertain offers.

- The bed has the typical rust over the fenders and a few holes in the bed . . easily fixed with a new bed if you care (the tailgate is pretty solid though).
- The cab is pretty solid with just a little rust starting in the cab corners and are easily fixable at this point.
- The doors are solid as well, there is a small bit of rust starting at the very bottoms, but it would be an easy fix too.
- And, as typical, the core support has some rust as well . . . this could be fixed, or you could just source good used one.
I have done my best to describe the truck and be honest with the condition, its really a fun truck to drive and it puts a smile on my face everytime I get in. Unfortunately, as I said, my wife hates climbing up in it, and it doesn't have space for our 2 new dogs, so I need to find crew cab truck that is a little lower to the ground for her. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
