    After blowing up my engine once and a few other problems, I have finally got my truck out on the road. I have some stuff left to do to it, alignment, glass, bed work, clean up all the wiring and title crap but it is running and driving.

    Very cool truck! Love the fleetside and that color ( not the primer :D) with the white accents is killer!

    The green is the paint I am sticking with. I will probably do a white metal flake roof and the bedside spears.

    Perfect, I'd like to see it in person some time. I used to have a Fleetside shortbed that I wished I had back.

    No, I missed the show this weekend too. I have a few things to do it before I really get out and drive it.

    Thanks again everybody! I have been jacking with it for over 6 years. I can only work on it on the weekends and that means about 45 miles one way to go work on it. I appreciate all the comments!
