( not sure if the sunroof is a stock option or or not)ive heard it was

so far i have to replace the rear leaf springs (one bows up not down) i guess this a typical for this truck. and the front sits higher than the rear because of this. it also has a small gas leak(thinking it is an injector on the passenger side )
oh and the exhaust is the stock headers to a cherry bomb to a turn down thats it.
So far im very happy with it for what i paid for it, i know both previous owners( i even have the original ket tag and key from the dealership). the original owner, my best friend's brither-in-law rolled it over twice since 1989. it doesnt look like it at all hopefully ill get so muddy pics soon. let me know what you all think

sorry for the pic siz i did resize them lol

Jut throw the tailgate on, get some new front fenders, and cut out the rust on the back quarters and fiberglass or patch in new metal. Thats a good deal for it though!

Congrats!
