    A family member owned this for 10 years and it basically sat the entire time. I finally bought it from him and now I'm starting to restore. Simply because I don't like rust. Currently it sits on 35" BFGs. Starting the tear down process and swapping the Gray colored body onto it. Then I plan on cleaning and maybe rebuilding the engine although it still runs but it has 150K Miles.
    New clutch, new air tanks, new carpet will hopefully be part of the rebuild. More to come.

    Look at the general section of the forums. It's in there.

    Looks great! Love it. Only 150K on that 22RE..? It's just getting broken in. I got ~240K on my '88 and nearly 300K on my '85. It's an '85 Blue, it's not a SAS truck!
