Well to make a long story short. My uncle passed away last year, and i bought one of the most loved things he left behind. His truck. He bought it with 2 miles on it. He has everything documented by date and year since 1990. Every oil change, wiper blades, brakes etc. Before his passing some damage was done to the truck and he never got to fix it. There is also some rusted spots that got extremely bad from sitting out in the elements for the past amount of months. It is now officially my truck. I will make a list in the next post showing what will be done to it. My goal is for the truck to be ready to go to college with me in 6 months. I am not sure if this is possible but i will soon find out. I will be doing ALL work myself except final paint and fixing the rusted rockers and cab corners. I am currently looking for a very good paint and body guy in the indiana area or states surrounding (within 2 hours). Any one who has connections for parts etc let me know ;) . ON TO THE PICS as it sits now:

well the plan is either 4 10s or a single 12. the 4 10s would be lower class or a ROCKIN 12. But no definant decision will be made for a few months. Still researching feasable options

my first updates of the truck will come this weekend. Pretty much a whole new front end. Only thing staying is the hood (for now) and idk if the fenders will be in yet.

im gonna get the truck where i want it first, then and only then i MIGHT think about a blow through. This trucks primary objective is NOT audio at this time. First im gonna make it a solid, fast truck. After all itd be a shame not to put that 5.7L V8 to work. Old school 350 cid:yumyum: :eek:

Good luck, Jeep.

A little TLC on that hood and it'll shine again, it looks just to be oxidized.
