That's a good price for that truck. I am at $3k just for my bulkhead alone (restored by Ike at Pangolin; included a donor, repair panels, galv, paint and shipping). Add a couple hundred more for replacement floor boards, good used straight seat box and tunnel and it adds up real quick. Aside from the bulkhead, I still have to paint the aforementioned body panels, restore gauges...

90 percent of the "restored series" are junk. Read all the posts on RN where people have bought "restored" trucks only to continue to fix latent issues and PO BS. They would have saved a lot of money time and effort by spending more initially...

You get what you pay for. Last Land Rover Ranch truck sold near that; so did the lanny clark and Pangolin trucks...

"CitriStrip paint stripper (which removed the military-applied paint, but not the factory paint)"

How does that work?

beautiful truck though...

^^Just brush it on, let it sit a while, then clean off the lifted paint and wash with soap & water. It takes a few applications of stripper, but works well.

It will leave the original paint!?!? I have been stripping using aircraft stripper, it takes ALL the paint (and skin).

I just read through his thread... maybe it does! I'm gogin to go buy a jug right now and give it a shot.
