Default Bringing it home

Winched it up on the trailer . Tires still held air suprisingly.

Believe it or not I changed engine oil with the truck on the trailer threw a battery in it and drove it off. Started up in less than 10 seconds of cranking after 11 Years !

Default Cleaning up the cab

Boy was it a mess in the cab. Doors had been leaking for a long time and i could tell the carpet was damp but when i pulled it out it was worse than what i was expecting. Nevertheless I ended up cutting the floor out and patching it up . Cant say Im too pleased with the outcome but it was my first attempt at something like this . I will probably end up redoing it or finding another cab but more on that later

Default Cab floor mess

Continuing the work on the driver side . It was definitely the worst side of the cab.

Default New fender and tires

Front fender was rusted pretty bad on the bottom so i ended up changing it for an aftermarket fender. (questionable fit and quality) Also tested a tire from a friend but really didnt like the style so i kept looking around for something else.

Default Cleaning up the exterior

Took off the trim as a lot of it was basically falling it off already . The box is actually not the original but it is a factory replacement . the trim by the wheel well had come loose and had filled with mud causing the only actual rust area on it, which was too bad . Like a responsible truck enthusiast I bought some rims and tires before addressing any mechanical issues. Also ended up taking the windshield out as it was cracked and there was water and mildew between the layers of glass.

Default Front axle repair

The front u joints were completely shot . Most of the needle bearings had long fallen out and been replaced with mud so i began tearing it all apart . Replaced it with some fresh parts and put it back together for the time being.

Default Small things.

For most of the summer I left it like that looked around for small things like side markers and taillights. Tried installing a windshield myself and broke it it . Oops. Also made a stack for the bed and did the free pump mods.Did some cleaning and tried to hunt down some small electrical issues.
