I dropped the motor back in but its not running yet...today sometime. I want to get this one running so I can pull the body off the other one. The guy with the 04 is at a nascar race so I'm on hold on that one.

I am just going to do a few thing to this one and sell it. I have a big project ahead and don't have the garage space, or driveway space for it. I got the wheels on last night but I cleaned them and the center caps so it took a while...lol I'll get a couple pics this evening.

Your right Brian...it sits high in the rear and the 14's make it more noticable.

I am getting ready to sell it Jason. I have decided not to paint it but I may touch it up, she has a few rust spots. I have a few things to do but it runs good.
John

Hey John all you have to do is flip your shackle in the rear and i guess that drops the back.

I drove "blue" to work today. Thats the first drive I've taken it other than a short test drive. Had a few issues. The battery was draining without the battery light on, found a ground cable I forgot to reattach and that fixed it. Air bag light...code 27...changed the bulb and code went away. No dome light with that annoying chime...cleaned and relubed the switches and installed a bulb. Also replaced a burnt out marker light and 3rd brake light bulb. A/c worked good, ran good, not to bad of a truck. I'm going to drive it a few days and see if any other bugs develop...she's been sitting a while.
