its the white one right? were you on tdr? i seem to remember one very similar to that.

ive had 4 different 1stgen diesels. i love em. one was an 83 crew painted up like a 79 macho. cool truck for sure, but the previous owner/builder did some mega-shoddy work. i got sick of fixing stuff, and it was rusty, so i sold it to a kid with too much money. now i wanna swap a 4 door cab and 6.5' bed onto my 92 x-cab frame, but cant find a nice cab and rear doors to save my life.

i say ctd + palomino = win. do it.

I am actually going to be in kansas next week with a friend delivering one, but he might be going back to OHIO later in the summer. I have more pictures, what is your e-mail address....
Also, if he does go back, you would have to deal with him on transport costs, and I would need some fuel money to get it to carson city nevada....
really your best bet would be to come and get it IMO....

cali is a darn long way from here. and (no offence) i dont like the state much anyway. i was there once and dont care to go back. anyway, gimme at least your zip code in the email. ill check into having it shipped, as i dont think i have the spare time to run out there and back.

sounds like the deal you mentioned might have worked, but is quite a bit of a stretch, especially with the short time frame.

oh, and sorry for the hijack.

yup, 36 inch mil tires....
wanted to go with the 37's, but they were more $$$, and I had a budget that I need to stay within....
I have 2 other sets of springs.....4inch and 6 inch fronts if I so desire, but I don't want to mess with the driveshafts, and when the cummins makes it in there I will probably need to do something with the front springs anyhow...

I also forgot, but I changed the bed with another one that I had that was in color....the decal matched up perfectly....there was a lot of luck there, I should have played the lottery when I installed it...lol...no more rust to contend with on the newly installed bed...the old one had wheel lip rust and some rot near the wheel well on the inside....
