After 17 years, I'm selling my ole girl. I bought her in 2004. Bodean from Cottonland Cruisers helped me to find this truck and was involved in most of the upgrades. Here is everything i can recall about the truck:

She came with (in 2004):
Original engine running well
Saginaw Power steering
Disc brakes
Front bumper is an air tank
HEI
Aluminum Radiator
Upgraded alternator and new wiring harness
Jump Seats
Rear heater
Front doors in good shape
Hard top (not assembled and not original to this truck but in good shape) (I believe all parts are there, but not 100% sure)
Ambulance doors
All windows
Sprayed in liner throughout


I added:
4 inch hell for stout lift
Eagle Alloy 15 in wheels
New Kumho 35X12.50s (last month)
Metal Tech Jackson Roll cage
Aussie locker in the rear
Tuffy center console
Tuffy rear speaker/storage boxes (mounted to jump seat holes) 6x9 speakers installed
New brake master to help with front and rear proportions (I believe this is an 80 series master, but that has been years ago.)
Cobra CB radio
Pioneer CD/USB radio
Sub woofer under driver seat
Speaker/Light combo over head
Sound is really amazing
Heavy Duty Battery cut off for accessories
Rock lights
Side lights
Custom rack in the back that I built to carry my jerry cans and a small cooler
Telescoping mirrors for when the door are off
Redid the front hubs several years ago

The cons:
The truck is in really good shape, but there are a few scratches here and there. The paint is old, but it shines up nice with some wax
The hard top would need to be assembled and painted to match or painted with the truck
Leaks a little oil like every other 40 going down the road.

$24,000

Let me know if you have any questions or would like to purchase.

Looks to be a very nice built 40!

Do you have any pictures under the hood and of frame?

Also, do you have knowledge of any previous rust repair and if so, locations and how it was repaired?

Thanks!

I can get some more pictures uploaded. To my knowledge, this truck has spent most of it's days in the south (Garland, TX, Jackson, MS, and now Lafayette, LA), so we don't usually have many issues with that. There is a little surface rust on the frame. Nothing a wire brush and paint wouldn't take care of. I don't have any knowledge of rust repairs. I have not done any rust or body repairs since I've owned her.
