It'll be a project alright. It doesn't look like much right now, but it'll be sweet when it's done.

You can't really compare this truck to yours, Ive had three truck from this company now and they abuse the hell out of them then sell them.

I bought my sychobilly98 from them over three years ago I also bought my donor truck I used for my engine swap as well so needless to say these trucks take it rough.

close but they only made that color one year and it was 98..

actually there were 2 dark greens in 98, one was a tad brighter and didnt have as much metallic and blue in it and then there is ours that has The blue and green in it depending on which way the sun hits it.

What color code is on the door tag if its PA they only made that color in 98 on the rangers not sure what other vehicles had the color.
