Thanks for the warm welcome.

Ive done a few intro's im on a few forums. there will be pics shortly. I got the truck in exchange for some work i did, so Im cleaning it up. nasty oil leaks (both valve covers are shot), clutch slipping (probably due to the oil) and the 4wd not working. so its in peaces in the garage. but when its done im sure it will be a solid truck.

Its the green/teal color, ext cab. gray interior, has outlaw style 15" with bald tires (hence the biggest tire question) sad to see I can only run 30's will have to fix that soon
