Yes and No i threw it up to see if i get any interest. I want to keep it but life is getting in the way like Chris said, i have been working 6 days a week for 10-11 hour days. and i am starting a new job on the 25th so i dont have anytime working on it as much as i would like to. not to mention i work on everyone elses pieces of junk all day so why do i want to go home and work on mine? There are a lot of thing on this truck that i would love to really change(diesel,yota axles) but its just time and money that i dont really have. i actually have the day off today, so i am going to hop in the garage and throw the drums back on, adjust them, and throw the new rear leafs and shocks back in,

Is it almost to the point where you can at least be able to tool around in it (legally) on the streets this Summer?

it is close to it. i think the last major thing it needs is i need to make a wiring harness for the directional lights and the brake lights which isnt my strong point at all. after that it needs tires and wiper motors rebuilt. than it would be road worthy.

Autosparks may be able to help you out if you need a full harness, or you may be able to get some local help if you're just looking for a light harness.
