    Hell yeah! You've got another 20 years out of that thing at least! Haven't had a good thread like this in awhile. Go hit some trails and enjoy it now!

    Thanks, it’s oddly satisfying to rehab a rusty turd.

    Got the spare mounted and finished up all the bolting in of the bumper, prepping it for a trip to Austin and hidden falls this weekend. When I get back I’m going to do some interior work and new clutch, possibly install another 350 that I have to get ready for big bend in 2 weeks.

    Wanted to add these photos of the light and open position. Ready to destroy that grease cap on the trail!

    Brilliant. Paint job seems pretty top notch, you'd never know the rust woes.

    Well I have 5 days left to finish prep for big bend. Stripped the interior for some tranny cover mods and sound deadening. Going to have to hit it hard in the coming days to finish. Also going to install some different seats so I’ll need to make seat mounts.

    I leave for big bend on Friday and this is what my truck looks like. Notice the flywheel visible through the tranny hole.
