Well got some more parts...

First Special thanks to Q man for the great birthday present, my fav tail lights of all time to go on the truck




Next special thanks to Catie (GF) for coming with me tonight, We picked up a chrome bumper with brackets tonight and also a very nice ext cab 2 door carpet, because mine is hosed badly, its wet and also smells of smoke and looks like vomit, so it is going in the trash and this one will get a good cleaning and go inside!

Groovy man! I like a painted bumper better, but a chrome bumper is better than no bumper, in most cases.

Makes sense to me. I was thinking you were going to get some custom bumpers made anyway.

Didn't know you did any welding. Do you have any drawings or ideas what it's going to look like yet?

If you're going to be wheeling this truck, why didn't you go with the vinyl carpet?

because it was $10... lol.. and rubber mats will work for now. dont plan on wheeling it in Mud so interior shouldnt get to bad. i hate mud.. trail wheeling, sand wheeling, snow wheeling cool, mud holes forget that


used to wheel the silver truck in mud, i wish i never did, it trashed parts so bad, my engine bay is horrible now
