I am 15 years old and worked very hard to pay off my truck..Here is the history of it.
My grandpa bought this truck in 95, Never drove it in the winter and only drove it around town during the summer. He decided he needed a 4WD truck, So he sold it to my dad, And he used it for a DD. Then my dad decided he wanted a car that gets 30+ MPG, Well he set it out by the road. At this time i was working, And decided to save up for the truck. Well i bought it in 2002 for $3K (Family discount) With 60K miles on it! This is was spotless! This is what it looked like when i bought it:

It was all stock, Except the ARE hard cover.
I bought some Euros, But then relized that they looked like ass, And threw my Stockers back on. Then i bought a JVC CD player and installed it. By time this happend i started to get hooked on Modifying my truck, But just lost my job. So money was very tight. I removed the trim and this is what it looked like after that:


And with the 4.3 Power, You have to have fun :)

I then bought some 20's, Here they are mocked up on my truck:

Did some work in the interior, Looks pink in the pics, But it is red!


This is the first time it has ever seen snow, But Still hasnt seen salt!:p

Bought a 350 from my friend, And it will go in next winter:

I just started buying bag parts to bag my truck I have SD 3-link, SD Shock relocators, SD front cups, 2B6 front bags, All fittings and airline, AVS switchbox, Fill and dump controls and a Check valve. I am buying it little by little and hopefully be done by June:

The 3-link
And i new have a Audiobahn sub and Pioneer amp:


Finally got the balls to do some bondo work:

And got bored today, Bought some Grand prix rims also:

I have a GM rollpan on order, Working on shaving my old front bumper, And am going to shave a bunch of other stuff on my truck, Then going flat black. Then baggin it and layin out on twentys. Keep looking in here for updates!

Here goes: Good Work Kid! I'd like to see you living near me. All the 15/16 year old kids around here are trouble makers. Looks like you're putting your time into something productive. Your work looks good from here. No matter how much you might feel like criticizing your work, remember, you're actually doing it. It looks good and keep those pics coming.

Oh yeah. I agree with everyone. You are doing an awesome job. My 15yr old son and I are doing all the work on our truck. He does bodywork, painting and more. It's good to see other kids interested in something more than tv and video games.

Keep up the great work and get that thing done so we can see pics.. LOL...
