Look at the ORF, that might give you an idea

OMG! This thread is really making me feel stupid and such a girl . I don't even understand half the stuff you guys are talking about. Can we talk about shoes, fashion or make-up for a bit to make me feel better?

Little bit of work, well, not really. I can't believe they pay me for this.

Yeah, it might be okay as long as it's not confused for a low-rider. I need to make sure nothing will get wet though.

4 inches and 35's would take away the confusion.

It's REALLY clean for a 73! It's got a little bubbling in small places and then that surface rust in the bed... But no holes and the frame is SOLID. the engine is super clean as well! I'm SO happy with it!

It runs AMAZING! And it drives pretty good, but it's a little rough going into 3rd and haven't gotten to 4th gear speeds (only drive around the. Lock a few times)... It may just need some working though. I need to check the t-fluid - got everything else's levels checked up on and topped off before work. I need to work on the parking brake too - doesn't catch all the way.

My only REAL complaint is the dash though... The PO added all these aftermarket gauges not even in the original places - why not fix the originals? The aftermarket ones he put in look kind of bad with the old ones STILL there... I'm going to be working on the interior - gauge cluster first - Monday for sure!

Sorry for the lengthy response... Im lovin' this truck of you couldn't tell... How's the night going for you??

Haha! It started settling down here. Hopefully the night stays calm... The first 6 hours of my shift kind of sucked. I'm getting paid time-and-a-half as well! Overtime? This ENTIRE shift has been overtime for me. They tried to get me to work last night too! Would've taken it - but the boss would've been upset with me. Haha!

WORD! The driver said he would give me $4000 on the spot to not unload it so he could take it home with him. It may have been foolish of me, but I told him no. I KNOW I could get about $5K if I did a little fixing up on it - but an even bigger point is: I bought this truck for a reason! Hahaha! I'm not looking to sell it before I've even driven it! Not that I ever plan on selling it in general.

I really like it so far! I'm trying to get a video I took uploaded so you guys can see a walk-around and hear it running!

What ARE louvers? Sorry if this is ignorant of me...

Also... The video of a walk-around of my truck (second start-up). About 3 or so minutes long and not really entertaining... But if anyone is interested...
