bought this truck about six months ago, and have been working on it non stop. figure its worthy of starting a build thread by now. got it with just under 180 000 kms im up to 215 already lol. first and second pics are a couple of hours after i got it. i changed the rims and tires, you can see what was on there, they are on my other truck behind.next came homemade shackles, t bar crank, exhaust and bedliner. found a nice little gmc truck badge for her too for all those people that say its not a truck.

next i started to work on the interior. took out the colum shift and put in the floor shift out of my old truck. took out ashtray and put in cb in its place. swapped the stock head unit out and added a sub and new speakers all around. took the bedliner to a few parts inside, whatever was easy to take off. (door handles, speaker covers, interior light cover)

put on some camaro rims with some 31" tires, mounted my cb antenna on the rear bumper, added some back up lights and tinted the rear window.

finally got some time to work on the jimmy. i picked up one of the overhead computers from the wreckers for 15 bucks. looked at putting it in the original location but decided to mount it where my ashtray used to be. ended up taking my rear tire mount off because it was denting the side of the truck. i had my taillight out and notice it was tearing the steel behind the light. once it stops raining ill bondo and paint where it was. made a new case/mount for my cb to go above the rear view mirror.just need to paint and mount it. hooked up some little led's that came with a set of cheap speakers. mounted some clearance lights on the visor too.

Looks good man! I see some scraped knuckles in the 3rd pic lol we've all been there.
I'm thinking of a lit visor but the thought of drilling into the roof makes me want to puke lol.

Good progress so far. Do you have any further plans for the computer in the ashtray or is that finished?

I was trying to be nice, haha. Some people would be totally happy with the way it looks, so I didn't want to judge.

I am a newbie around here still... can't go p&&&ing off the natives just yet, ya know?
