Well called a guy and found an 8.8 with 3.73's and an open diff. Perfect for my plan and for only $200. I'm going to try and get an electric locker this summer for it.

Havent been able to do alot with the truck because of money but heres the latest update.

Not going to use the rims shown above. Most likely going to just find a matching rim for mine in the junkyard for now.

Rear window is still leaking. I will have to get some window seal tape stuff and redo it.

and last but not least got some retreads!

Make sure it's not your brake light leaking before you keep on pulling your window out. I had to seal mine up.

Check out Custom 4x4 Fabrication in OK City for your bumper.
They make a great front bumpers and now they make a rear steppie bumper, both plate bumpers and rugged.

I have a thread for the rear bumper here on this site, take a look; I do not believe you will find betters bumper for the money.

Well it's on and it sounds amazing. Still not finished. I'm going to custom make exhaust tips ( let's see how well that works). And I have to bed mount the spare since my step brother is new to bending pipe it doesn't fit. Oh well it's on and I'm loving it.

well got some bad news... My exhaust fell off. I guess thats what I get for free right? lol. oh well its welded up the best I can do for now. Some more bad news. My fan clutch went out and so did my driverside wheelbearing. MUD ISNT WORTH IT!! thats what im coming to find out.

But on the bright side! i got some hood scoops for 20 bucks. I have to repaint them and then put them on. Cant decide if I wanna do them silver or black? im gonna try both and see which I like best.
