I spent the last couple of days underneath this truck installing a Limited Slip Differential I found in a junkyard and purchaced for 150 bucks... at the same time, I fixed an axle seal that had been leaking for at least 3 years, and installed new rear brake shoes... I have a parking brake now Wooooot..! and clutch kicks produce an entirely different reaction than before
this has got to be the toughest truck ever built.... I've owned it for 5 years now and used it as my daily driver the whole time... Ive put over 80 thousand miles on it, every one of which has been at 9/10....It smokes, rides like a buckboard and only gets 20mpg.... but it has never failed to start....not even once... its deserving of much better treatment than I give it....
since these pics were taken, I put a grill from an 88 in it, and added some aerodynamic devices that bumped my gas mileage to almost 24mpg.... Show Less
