    I know I was surprised how good the paint was for a farm truck! And bad news on the chrome I wanted the chrome off ASAP so i took it to a body shop and they got one piece off and found out all the chrome is held on with silicone which means they can't get it off without damaging the paint. They tried everything so until I can afford to do all that the chrome has to stay for a while.

    Thanks Nak!
    I definitely will let you know! So far I love it! 20mpgs instead of my 11 and loads more power! The allision 6 speed is amazing and I have already hauled a car with our gooseneck trailer and it did a great job while still getting 17mpg's! (it was only a civic ) It was a great upgrade!

A local farmer that we've known for a while just happened to have it for sale that week so once I knew I could get a good deal on it I pulled the trigger! Well enough talk and here are some pics! I'll put them in order of how it was when I bought it and what I've already gotten done to it

    This dude loved chrome...


    After some chrome removal....



    All washed up..



    dumb chrome hubcaps off and steel wheels painted black...




    And not the best picture but my old wheels and tires from the wrecked on and the truck leveled up! I'll get better pictures up of how it sits now. I just installed a 4'' turbo-back exhaust yesterday, wasn't as hard as I expected really and I'm running a edge evolution programmer that I got a steal of a deal on! So far I love it!!
