Just a couple from today.

The Tan truck is close to what I'll be aiming for lift wise.

Btw, I fit fine.

Also, its not nearly as much of a dog as the Internet makes it out to be. Did 75 all the way home from Mendota just fine.

Dog really likes riding in it too.

Honestly, I really liked driving this thing home today. Even tho it's obviously got a tire or 3 that aren't balanced right. It's chill and cool. The cut exhaust could totally pass for daily driving too, but I want to be able to drive with the rear window down without sucking diesel fumes.

I mean it's got a CB and a nicer pioneer head unit to boot. It's sweet!

Really enjoying it so far.

Will say I'm curious on your MPG. My buddy with his worn out 82 Dat Diesel w/a 5 spd and I hauled a 16 foot open trailer with an 83 Regal and the back and averaged something like 24 mpg round trip for about a 5 hour trip. I'd think low-mid 20s but maybe I'm off my rocker.
I drove it 90mi home from the swap location and the gas gauge hardly moved 🤷‍♂️
