Breaks all round, shocks, springs, tires, rims, radiator, plugs, wires fix rust issues. Other items I haven't seem to find yet.

Everything mechanically on my truck is good now. I need to fix a dent I have on the rear bumper and a light dent on the rear fender. I also need to replace some of the glass because the previous owner damaged the glass (No cracks or scratches) and another paint job.

Where do I begin? The "must" do list or the "this shit ain't right and needs fixed" list? The second list is much much longer...

If we go by what absolutely needs to be done, rear springs (broken leaf on the driver's side) which is in work, tires all the way around, the drive shaft is out of balance (since there was a weld repair done on the aft yoke, a replacement is probably in order), and half the dash lights are burned out.

The just needs done list is the passenger side slider in the cap needs a new latch, the dome light in the cap needs hooked up, the rear speaks inop, the center arm rest is broken, and the front bumper valence needs replaced.

Things that would be nice are a ford logo for the grill and a paint job to stop the rust before metal gets eaten through.

I'm sure there are others but I can't think of them off hand.

Well at the beginning of last month when i bought the truck here was my list:
Put on nerf bars
Tint the back 3 windows darker
Put on clear corners
Remove the dealer badging
Put on Tonneau cover
put in 4 bike standing bike rack for truck bed
put in hyperwhite bulbs for headlights
upgrade the intake
upgrade the rims
change the oil
change the spark plugs
Add a bull bar front gaurd with PIAA lights


Now one month later I've managed to do everything on that list, except for changing the spark plugs and adding the bull bar front gaurd.
