I have been looking for just the right first gen for aloooonggggg time now and I finally found her. On Jan 19 I will be picking her up and bringing her back to VA. I can't believe I found a 1st gen this clean. She's a 89 4.3 auto, extended cab.

I can't put the big slam on it like I want. I am in the military and due to Osama's sorry tail, they have put MOUNTAINS for speed bumps at the gates!! The only way I could have the slam drop is to go with air, BUT i have too many motor mods in store for this bad boy right now. I might put a 2/3 on it for starters, and outfit it with some 18's. I love the Eagle 217's. The have caught my attention for the moment.

Well man to each his own, the stripes were a selling point for me. But then i am a big stripe guy. I guess I am kinda retro 60's that way. I just have to get a little something underneath that hood now so I am not ricer, posing.

i have nothing against stripes.. but if yer gonan do em do em right... take em across the roof and down the talgate and hell even on t nose i know the roof didnt have them but dunno about the tail or the front clip... and they kind of look like stickers :confused: painted stripes are very nice though no doubt

They are painted, I will be finishing up the roof myself. I might hold off on that, pending a decision on getting a snuglid, anyone got a good source on one of those. i don't mind removing the bed liner for it. The paint is good on there.

Seriously, IMO, I've never seen one this clean on a First gen with this many miles. I will let you guys decide.

Engine looks clean as hell, should make it easier to sell it to recomp the money from your 350ci purchase (j/k):D
