New shackles & mounts, exhaust, cat, ball joints, brakes & tires, and a couple other things I'm sure I'm forgetting.

Was referred to RF by a member of another forum that we both frequent. Look forward to advice, tips, and all RF has to offer.

Thanks guys.

Started attacking the surface rust on the frame & undercarriage with a wire brush. Still shocked at how good things look on this truck considering its' age. Gonna order some POR-15 soon and probably re-do the headliner (it's a little nappy from the PO)...I'm thinking desert camo.

Thanks again.

Been chipping away at the undercarriage. After much research, I decided to go with Rust Bullet over POR-15. From what I've read, it provides better results with little to no prep work required......even though I'm prepping anyways. Should be here some time this week.

Other than that, I've discovered that the e-brake is on its' way out, which isn't a big deal, but something is kinda funky with the turn signals and hazards. Might be a relay, bulbs, or both, but since the truck isn't on the road yet, I'll take it one step at a time and finish up the undercarriage first. No rush.
