Hey guys Im new here, so I figured I'd show you my new fixer upper.

I picked up this truck from a friend that my Dad works with. Its a 86 S10, 2.5L FI, 5 Speed Manual. Has 150K on it. I've already put a Southern Box on it, and within a week I'll be getting a southern Cab, southern doors, and Southern Fenders, and new inner wheel wells, then its off to be painted :D





I haven't decided if I want to drop it yet, because I'll be driving it in the winter :(

go with a 6" long travel lift, instead of a drop

Must be nice to have A/C :) Mine doesn't have it, but Im thinking of getting one of those after market A/C kits, in the late spring.

Well I think it will look nice once shes done. The real bonus is that she won't have any rust on her at all once done.

Since were having a new cab put on, were going to have the body shop sand blast the entire frame, and then paint it black. Then I'll get her rust proofed for the winter, and things will stay looking nice... er at least I hope :)
