    as i bought it

    and all I've done to it other than put a water pump on it is to make it all one color.

    I kept staring at the raised letters on the tail gate know i could make something cool out of but it just wouldn't come to me. so i went in the house had a couple of black and tans and then it hit me like a pine cone falling out of tree.

    Hi, and welcome to the site! I like what you did with the tailgate! I can't wait to see what all you do to the truck in the future. Thanks for the pictures.

    Does the cab real tilt to one side like the pic. shows? Maybe it is time for some new Bushing Donuts under the cab.

    Yes it really does tilt like that. :( It's a combination of worn out bushings and an idiot p.o. The p.o. Decided that after spending good money on drop spindles that he was going to use cut 2500 springs. Well he didn't measure correctly when he cut them. So project money permiting I'll be putting corect springs and new bushings.

    That price sounds about right. Engine is probably worth about 700 and the truck is probably worth about 800.
