Default Pics and update on the '87

I did some more to the truck, and it's nice outside so I decided to update.
I put on a tonneau, refinished the foglight covers, added a motorsport plate, and did some work on the interior. I put the 83-84 style steering wheel back on and relocated the horn button to where the cigarette lighter was since I don't smoke lol.

I did it because I was having horn brush trouble, but if you want to convert to the old horn buttonless style wheel on '85+ this is a good way to still have the horn work lol.

Also I have a minty tailgate I found at the junkyard I still need to put on after I paint it.

Thanks everyone, a v8 may be in the cards later on. For now while going to TTU the 2.9 is adequate and it gets decent mpg with the 5 speed.

Dropping the rear level with the front is next on the to-do list.
