dont ask bout her name started out as a joke and kinda stucl lol, it has 33"s, 2 inch lift, welded rear end, cold air intake, straight pipe, spray in bedliner interior, cut 4 1/2" out of the fenders, i saved the trucks life it was on its way to be hauled in for junk iron, timing was off 180, computer fried, both fuel pumps were out, guy cut out all the relays, took a month to get all that figured out , paid 300 for it and used all the parts off my 89 to fix it(i wore out the 89, had 425000 miles on her) , got 700 total in her i usually ride at shiloh ridge offroad park in alto tx, nice place to ride if your ever in the area

I like the paint job. Can you post more details on the paint you used? how did you apply it?

I used industrial alkald... Sorry cant spell it... Its oil based paint used to paint machinery... I tried to thin it out and used an air sprayer, but I put on 4coats and still could see the primer so I broke out the airless and that worked well, a few runs but nothin major, took bout a week to cure out in the sun id roll it iut during the day and rill it in at night to keep the dew off it, its far from show quality but hey the paints tough and its a hooptie bought the paint at a do it best hardware store
