The long and short of the story is I got my truck 4-04 and sold to my brother in 9-08 to get my 08 SD (Dumest thing I've ever done). I got it back in 10-10 and have been working on since when I've have had time.

Well I've Been working on my truck to get it back up to useable conditon It needs a lot of TLC (Time, Labor, and Cash). I started by changing the trans, flex plate, new batt, driver door hinges, and brake line. I've driven a little now still got a lot of work to do. Short list

New windsheild find leak
Find oil leak (oil coller or turbo o rings or so I've read)
3" RSK and 2" front leaf springs, Lift rear 5" and 40"
Change front U-joints
SD seats or recover mine
Maybe change my motor with the one I have or chang over the stage 1's
And I'll add more More as I go I'm sure

Here's some pic
the truck


Inside

Trany out and flex plate



A few at home


And the parts truck that gave It's life for this truck RIP


I'll add more as I go
Thanks For looking JJ

None taking. It is a nice crew cab but it's my extra truck I've got an 08 SD for the heavy work. This truck did it's work befor that so now time to play.

Sorry didn't see your post I have the 16 alum ones but I holding on to them right now there was a guy on the org that had steel ones with three hub caps he wanted to sell.

Here an old pic from a cell phone i just found, not sure how good it will be, from when i broke the rear end and we pulled it up on my buddys trailer (at the time now mine) after we unloaded the two derby cars that I was pulling when it happend.

Well I had the OBS out mon driving it around Stoped and put fuel in the rear tank and 1/2 went on the ground. So it looks like a new rear tank. Then the front brakes started to grind so that the next project but wile I there I'm going to change the front U joint that are very very very bad so that way I'll put the front drive shaft back in. Well it never ends.
