    it needs:
    -exhaust (gonna run purple hornies with turndowns)
    -Tranny cooler line replaced, just gonna run a B&M tranny cooler and block off the factory cooler lines
    -Speedometer doesn't work
    -Few other little things

    Nice truck, always wanted a 73-87 4x4 but want some decent gas mileage. IS that a short bed, my eyes are messing with me right now.

    Someone in Ohio has a slammed truck like this, really awesome paint on it, looks amazing, makes me want one. Cool truck though, when I was really young (pre 10) my dad had one of these with a 454 and a 350 turbo tranny I believe. Man was that truck cool, I could see the road through the floor while we were driving, and in the summers when he was working on it he would order a pizza for lunch or something and we'd sit on the fenders with the pizza on the air pan and eat. Oh good times. Sorry for the ramblings. Cool truck.

    welp got the purple hornies on it today, might have to redo them when i go to put the front driveshaft it in, the passenger side one might hit, they dont sound too bad, im pretty sure the truck is out of time though, listen to it idle in the video and let me know what you think about the timing

    im pretty sure the timing is off, it wants to kill itself all the time, might be in part of the quadrajunk carb on it too
