I had it for sale for the longest time -- I still plan on selling it but since its sat there it needs a fresh coat of primer and some sanding..

I hope to sell it here soon..

Im working on it :) but it wont be a 302 -- I wanna put in a 4.6 alum block..but one thing at a time..

The cab is easy to take off -- since the fenders are three bolts, hood is quick lift..its just the cab, four bolts

the first pain was the first time -- since everything else was connected..when I put it back on I built the rest of the truck and nothing was reconnected. so it was put it on the rack and push a button...easy...
