Full size mod?!?!

Not really....I decided Grandma's Truck was long overdue for a wash. So I snapped some pics

Little info:

351M auto - never been worked on, only problem was replacing the exhaust manifold and rebuilding the t-case (never got put in 4x4)

stock suspension with 15x8 Eagle alloys and 33x10.50 Timberline A/T (don't make fun, it was all I could afford)

Original paint for the most part, it's been touched up, and the whole truck got clearcoated.

Interior has never been touched except for LED gauges and sound system

True dual exhaust with 12" glasspacks, and new rear bumper

The truck was a gift from my grandma on my 16th birthday. I call it "Grandma's Truck" because that truck sat under her carport for as long as I can remember and I always called it that.

On to the pics

That truck is perfect in every way. EXCEPT, I would put a quieter exhaust on there.

When I get money saved up, I'm gonna do a frame-up restoration, completely rebuilding everything.

It will look exactly the same as it does now. But with a new paint job inside and out and a rebuilt engine
