You're right... It is a little rough. haha. but i'm sure you'll fix her up real nice. And i have two votes, i'd keep the rims on truck 25 on there. I like them. And paint wise, i'd go for a two toned job. i mean it's gonna be your truck. make it look awesome.

Yeah I have plenty of time to think about paint. I might go with blue this time but I'm afraid I'll eventually want to go back to black...lol

Nah just head gaskets, it ran good just overheated. It was pumping the coolant out of the radiator.

Well I finally got it finished up and drove it some today. It's running good and not overheating so I think I solved the problem. I'm going to drive it for a couple days and see how it acts. So far no cel's or any other obvious problems except I know it needs an alignment and better tires.

Swapped the bucket seats and console also
