    Er....rhino'd the entire truck? I think I would pass. That just seems like a nightmare waiting to happen and probably a very difficult resale.
    Man, I see cheap 80's all the time up here, and with factory lockers. Why not just buy a stocker, then do a lift and tires? You can enjoy a lot even without the winch/bumpers, etc.

    I did a cost analysis. My nature is to get to the end state with trucks, and I tend to overextend until it gets done. I can't have that happen anymore, so I am trying to go in on the other end.

    I figure with the Slee mods, etc that have been done with this rig I am saving money once I consider the costs of material and time. I hate working on trucks, I like driving them. I have another vehicle for DD duty and I am not planning on selling this thing anytime soon (if ever). This is my final shot at cruiserdom for a LONG time. I just want to wheel.

    Plus, I was planning on rhino'ing my 80 at some point anyway...this is one step up hehe, he used military hazmat barrel lining material. This will be a woods truck, not a grocery getter. Dedicated trail only, looks perfect for me.
