Bulkhead is in good condition expect around the upper window rail. there is rust around that area. Truck is missing the back tail gate window. Front winch plate added for easy install.

Everything is working properly including lights. If you need additional info or pics, please contact me. Looking to get 7k obo.. Thank you.
