Number 15...

I needed the bedliner out of the gold truck for number 16(the green one) so I had to clean the bed out. I decided to push it out and take a few pics. The white truck is getting rebuilt with the cab off the gold truck. I am undecided on which bed I'm going to use or get another one. The white bed has dents in both sides but the gold bed has a large dent in the drivers side. I am not ready to jump in full force yet until the green ones done but thought I'd give you guys a heads up. I am trying to make room because I have 2 more trucks coming! stay tuned...same bat time same bat channel...lol

I don't have any 4 cyl's Cody, just 3.0's out the a**! Thanks Cam! I got the underhood harness swapped this morning and after I do the radiator I'll have to pull the dash to swap for the 4wd harness. Then it should run again!

When I just glanced at the gold trucks frame it looked like there was a 4cyl motor. But I just looked again and there is no motor. My last post = FAIL

I was smart enough when I built my garage to put 2 I beams in. I use a come along on the front and a set of heavy duty straps on the rear. In the case of the white cab I just cut it up with a sawzall after removing the good stuff. So far today I have swapped the under hood and dash harnesses and I'm still hooking things up. I'll post a couple pics when I'm done for the day...

It runs! I managed to get it back together and drive it into the garage for the night...not bad for 3 days. Of course I had help from Brian on saturday and Scott today...thanks again! Anyway I have some details to take care of but thats going to be after I clean the driveway back up and get the green one finished up and for sale...so for now this is as she sits.

Weekend update! Well I pulled the bed off and repaired a bad shackle and a rusted off shock mount. I wanted to get the bed out of the garage so I went ahead and painted the frame and reinstalled the bed. Its a little rougn but it what I have...lol Anyway I did straighten the big dent a little but it needs some more work. After the truck had sat for a couple years it needed a wash job so I gave it a quick wash...doesn't look bad for an old truck! Anyway here's a few pics.
