Umm, yeah me too. I already have the console but I'll take the seats, climate control and rear window. I'll trade you the cloth counterparts even.

Going to be a sweet truck once you get it fixed up!

small update: we started to push the roof around a bit today and made a bit of progress. we cut out the inner stucture peices along the back of the cab over the window and the rear, inner pillar structure to make it easier to push around. these trucks are stout!! parts of the cab are 4 layers of stamped steel structure peices thick. i was dumb and forgot my camera but i snapped a couple pics of the porta power setup with my cell phone. its exciting to see some progress.

i havent bought a bed yet, i had one lined up but i held off. we are just concentrating on the cab right now. my dad said he wants to straighten the bed and replace the bedside so we can use the money i had set aside for the bed, on the cab.

i havent looked into LMC. my dad gets 40% off retail for ford parts, so thats where were getting the body peices except the grill, bumper cover tailight, tailgate ect. well get those used or aftermarket. LMC tends to be a bit pricey
