Here are some recent pictures of the truck including one of the upgraded truck bed.
http://davemsanders.com/TheTruck.aspx

The bed had a 1/4 inch diamond plate steel sheet welded in to it. I did not want to cut it out so a wood bed was not possible (tried that...a mess and a disaster) so I treated the bed with Herculiner and had it covered in diamond plate aluminum. It is holding up VERY nicely.

I also replaced the bucket seats with a Teas Designs bench made for the truck. MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE..

Finally, a look at the engine compartment and (sorry, could not resist) a picture of her FIRST trophy. smile

Would love to!

You are absolutely correct. "Might as well itis" has nearly broke me.

I am still working on a few things to be corrected but having a tough time getting something done.

I need to replace the oil pan but the engine has to come out to do that. I have a gas leak that needs fixing (minor, only leaks a little when I fill it up) and the starter gives a terrible noise once in a while (Fat Man's thinks its a cracked flywheel but I am not so sure. I think it is a shim issue). Once these things are corrected, I have it FINISHED.

Ran out of money and now trying to find someone who will trade some parts for the work (I have a couple of thousand dollars worth of hipo stuff)

I'd do it but don't have the equipment (or the time for that matter).
