    i could really use snow anytime now lol with the downtime this part of the year brings i have too much time to look around at trucks for sale. heres the latest, 2002 2500hd, 4x4 8.1. picked her up cheap. the service body didnt come in the sale, however i insisted on taking it off for the guy because he told me he was just going to have his buddie cut it off for him... WTF. lucky for me i still have the bed off my 2003 that just happens to be the same color!

    heres the to do list-
    - all the brake lines
    - oil cooler lines
    - tranny cooler line
    - sandblast the frame, primer, paint, tar, undercoat.
    - all new brakes, calipers
    - sandblast rims, paint black
    - towing mirrors
    - tires
    - replace rockers
    - engine fan and clutch replacement
    - change oil, both axles, transfer case, coolant, all filters
    - and more as i think of it lol

    pics will be updated as i go, these are after the first day

    You'll love the 8.1, I'm a huge fan....

    Why not skip the bed you have for it and put a flat-bed on it.?

    thanks, 141k

    i didnt want it anyways, my 03 is a service body

    i never liked the looks of a single wheel flatbed, with my other one being a service truck, this one will have just a backrack and a single crossover in the bed, oh and a plow.... DUH Thumbs Up

    If you find it missing, I took it. Buffalo's not that big, I'm sure I'll find it eventually! Haha looks like you have a really nice truck and a nice project going on there. Nice to see another local guy too!

    I like all the work your putting into it. How long did it take to sand blast that frame and what type of sand blaster did you use? Any pictures of the blaster??
