just bought a 98 2.2 5 speed short bed that needs mostly body work but drives fine other than the power steering pump makes some noise and i seen some fluid on the frame some im thinking it needs a line...... 102000 miles on the odometer....

my plans are to do the body work clean the interior because its a mess, do a 4/4 drop .2 inch drop spindles and 2 inch springs up front 4 inch blocks in back.a decent sound system, crager soft 8's, soft cover for the bed. a nice grille. cowl hood. paint and deatail the engine bay......shave everything..... nothing too extreme so i can still haul my dirtbike

heres a few pics of the day i got it.

these are just temporary until i get the factories cleaned up they got some kind of over spray on them .. i was thinking about candy red on the clears or nite shades on them . they were cheap when i bought them. other than not not looking that great when you have the reverse lights on they light up everything.

on a side note i filled the power steering pump with fluid and it seems to be not making noise anymore. i put a few miles on it yesterday and everything seems to operate good.
