If your think about trying to convert it to your truck dont bother, pick up the frams and all get it straight and swap your cab and stuff over if that what you want to do. Better off getting a 4x4 or doing a 4x4 conversion via SAS on yours

yeah, it'll probably cost you some money. and you'll have to get a different fender for the passenger side. so you will have to paint probably. if it was easy for you to go and look at and get, i'd do it. i don't have any idea about prices tho. but i think you should.

You should buy the rims too, and then give them to me for my birthday! Who cares if it's still 6 months away.

lol,j/k. If you can get the parts for the right price, then heck yea man. But you won't get lucky like I do with the F100 and find shit for 10 bucks here, 20 bucks there.
