well i figured i would start some threads for my projects now.

got the big red turd in the garage now,Alan helped get the ole dully pushed out. i am planning on replacing all the lugs and nut. replace all the wiring through out. who ever started this halfass project just cut everything out under the dash...and everywhere else. they have speaker wire ran to the starter and alt, so time ti re wire. repair/ replace RF axle u joints or shaft. probably the shaft. it looks like the u-joint ears are distorted on part of it. gotta replace the gas tank. build rear seat mount and install that. and redo the cage. its really FUBAR ed in there. then maybe later on some rails and maybe skid plates.

there are some other things to i just dont remember them all right now.

Sprite, burritos, a bench grinder, and a stripper pole in the attic. What could be any better than that.
