    Purchased this big blue beast from a fellow form member who purchased it from another forum member. Here are a few pictures of her the day I picked her up.

    The very first thing I wanted to fix was the paint bubbles on the hood and the rock chip on the grill. I headed to the local hardware store and picked up some rustoleum flex-dip, painters tape, and a new newspapers.

    I'm really happy with the final product and it makes the truck look a 1000x better.

    Over the last few weeks a friend and I have been working on making a rear hitch mounted tire, jack, and gas can holder.

    After about 5 hours of work we decided to call it quits for the night and here is what he had so far.


    Here is a final sketch I did of what we want it to look like when we're done.

    A few days later we picked up the project again and started where we left off.

    After another 5-6 hours of work it was finally starting to look like it was supposed to.

    Tonight we spent a lot of time adjusting and tweaking the last few measurements to make sure the rack would accommodate everything I needed it to.

    After searching all over I finally found a shop that had the 33X12.5x15 tire that I was needing in stock.
