Default A few pics

Havent been on here in a while, but thought I'd post a few pics of the truck. I'm about to move from california back to North Carolina (still on active duty). Once settled I'll be looking to do a repower.

Let me know what you think of the truck, spent its whole life in Nevada and California as far as I can tell so no real rust.

A couple more. Dont judge me on the wire holding up the plug wires, had to do a Bush fix and haven't corrected it yet.

Thanks, tires are 37 inch toyo's on Stockton rims.
And yes on the fuel pump / coil. Fire department made a few changes under the hood. Ironically they also made a huge fire hazard of the wiring on the truck as well...

I'll be sourcing parts over the next year or so as the budget permits. The current plan is to do a 4bt swap, NV4500, twin sticked 205 and update the axles to something w discs all around.
That may change if I come across deals on different parts. I also need to find a deuce and a half passenger seat for when I remove the battery box so I can fit both kids in the truck.
Once I finally get moving on the rebuild, I'll post any take off parts on here for you guys.
