    The '88 2WD is gone. I traded it to a friend a while back. But I just acquired a new "Little Dodge". It's a '91 short box 4X4. It has a couple issues, but nothing I shouldn't be able to handle up!

        LOL, it's actually my grandson! We have been threatening mom with a surprise visit to the hair factory if she doesn't get on it right away! It's an ongoing battle with her first child's first haircut. But aside from that, he is the reason I bought it. After I sold the 88 he kept pointing to where it was. It bugged me how much he related to it and it not being there. So I bought him another to play in!

            Did a few little touch ups over the last couple days. :) It's solid as a rock now. I am also converting the interior from tan to grey. Now that I have the body in good shape, I have to figure why it wont start after it's warm. Sometimes it has to cool before it will fire again? This should be a challenge!

              Nice work good idea to have some sound deadenning matt make a real difference in comfort with less noise.

                Thank you. I am hoping for sound and heat reduction. Once the new carpet arrives, I'll know the effect it has.

                I *think* it would have helped a lot on my 83, I did about the same thing -- then I went and put headers and such on there so the net change was more cabin noise, and that was with the heaviest tube units I could find.
