Default Build to road worthiness

I bought Stinky ( I call her that because the interior smells) for $500. I have never owned a 4x4. This is my 4th Ranger. Anyways I wanted a challenge on a very low budget. Well here she is $500 might have been to much 🤔 So far I have done u- joints wheel bearings on the front axle. Found some body panels from I think was cheap $165. I will be doing the spindle bearing next weekend I couldn't find the seal kits need locally

Good looking El Camino!! I remember when I wouldn't even look at any GM, nowadays, I'll even look at a Rambler from last century!LOL

Ok I have a few updates got both fenders and the hood and door changed out. Also found a good deal on some tires and rims. Not what I wanted but I thought to good to pass up. Tires made a huge difference in the truck way more comfortable. The tire that were on the truck rubbed and were out of balance. I was going to paint the grill but I saw that is was Chrome so I used some steel wool and cleaned the paint off. I think I'm going to leave it chrome
