Five hours actually doesn't seem that bad. Glad I don't need to help now. :)

YAY!





It just passed PA inspection so I figure I'd poke around (literally, heh) at the rust on the rocker. Well my screwdriver went through and it got uglier from there.

Yea, I'll have to order some new rocker panels this weekend and make it another weekend project cutting and welding on new ones. In a couple months I'll take the bed off for a fuel pump replacement and I'll treat the frame at the same time. Gonna be a busy summer for the beater!

RICE!



Heh, nah I'm just a dork. Rear diff cover was starting to look sketchy so it was due for a replacement. Had some paint laying around I needed to use.

Looks like everything is in good shape, snapped a picture of the little 7.625" Detroit locker.

Whoops!



Icy bridge and Detroit locker is no bueno. Guardrail stopped me though! :lol: Bumper was pushed into the tire and after some debate about using my roadside towing, I remembered I had some ratchet straps.



Good as new. It's driveable till Spring. Amazingly new parts off Rock Auto are cheaper than used, albeit China knockoffs.

It keeps on living. Junkyard parts and it's as good as "new"!









The brakes have always been cruddy looking since I bought it, but always braked fine. Finally started to develop a squeak that went along with speed. Passenger side caliper was shot, but I went and replaced both.

All new!



The old pads were one hard stop away from failure!



Rotors had seen better days too...



So now it's back on the road. It's only $14 a month to insure it so I don't mind throwing money at it here and there.

Yea, I have no idea why I keep putting myself through the abuse...

Heh, nah. Give me something to do and it's a tough little truck. Slower than a snail with a hard-on, but reliable.
