you want 700lbs hypercoils this time, not 750.

rough plans include a 3/4 drop, some wheels, a stepside bed, a turbo, and other small things along the way...

started cleanin it up today; unusedcarified it, performed a deflapification, and swapped in a set of 98 tails






unusedcarification - disposal of PO's crap, sticker removal, searching for loose change, general exterior cleaning, serious interior cleaning sometimes requiring disassembly and removal of seats/carpet.

Man gumby to fit that spare Mud Tire you are going to have to do some serious fender hacking. Might want to invest in a battery powered sawzall if you don't already have one.

That's a classic. The 93 was the year of the major overhaul in design which lead to the current bodystyles of today. I had a 94 and at the time it was the best looking mini-truck you could buy.
