My truck just rolled over 95000 miles. I think the previous owner purchased the grill from jc whitney many years ago. It looks alright on the frontside but its rusting pretty bad on the top and bottoms of the tubing. Think I might replace it with a nice factory chrome looking one if I can find one. Dano

My great-grandfather purchased it new in '78 and owned it for 8-9 years. My great-uncle has had it up until a year ago when I bought it. Always under carport and never abused. Bad thing is he didn't drive it enough so when I get it and get it back running right and driving it everyday everything is just about dried out. If I can find the pics I'll post them of when I first got it. Had the old diamond-plate running boards, full camper cover since new, fiberglass roof visor, and yep a sunroof. I took everything off except the grille and push bar. Truck was cheaply painted 2-3 years ago and used to be red and white two tone. Had 235/75s on it when I got it and man did it look funny.Dano
