    This is my old truck from high school. I brought it from my parents home to my home with the plan of selling it. I was going to finally give up on the dream of getting it back to its former glory. Then my son said those words that made me as happy as can be! "Dad, I think I want the old truck. Would you help me fix it up?" Well the wife is pissed off about it but I'm over the moon excited for the project. More details soon!

      As it sits it has a 318, 727, NP241, Dana 60s with 4.10s front and rear. It's on dry rotted 38" Swampers so they will be replaced with some 35 or 37" MT tires that will be more streetable than the Swampers. Plan is to replace the stock TBI with a Sniper or FI Tech EFI unit. I want to keep the AC and cruise but I know they both rely on the TBI computer so that will be a trick. I'll document it here because my memory is crap. Wish me luck!

            Actually her truck is a nice red 03 quad cab sport with a 5.7 so it would be a good truck for him too, but we are most excited about the build process on the 89!

                Nice project, good to see him wanting to do something besides play video games like a lot of kids.
