hahaha, Quite some time left. I've got alot of body work todo... And i've not ordered my rotating assembly for my engine...... Got a set of heads getting some loving right now(Finally) That'll be a big weight lifted. Tax check will pay for those.

We also tore down the red chevys engine to spruce up a oil pan gasket... And opened a can of worms...... Had to tear it completly down, Sent the block,crank and rods to get checked. The bearins were ate up... Anddd with our luck, the cranks going to need to be turned or replaced...Block is in good shape... Still waiting on the word about the rods. If they don't check out good...... It might become a little bit bigger cubic inch ... but with that stroker kit, we will be into it 5 grand this go around... Just that engine..lol

I don't know if you know it or not.... but i'm a poooooooooooooooooooorrrr ****... lol.. Just two of us building a complete frame off truck. And trying to keep the other truck going. Its too much. Might be another year of 1 truck lol

Most of the underside rust holes are fixed. All bottom side of body is wire wheeled,prepped,primered, and coated with bed liner.

Good deal. CL is always hit and miss. Biggest hit we scored was a best top hard top for the TJ's. Played $50 for it. You cant touch that thing new for under $2,000. Lucky as hell, we were.

Nice deal. I bought a set of 35's with those rims in a 5-lug dodge bolt pattern. Sold then for $100.
