Well, he was able to pick up a straight and solid tailgate for it. It cost $200, but it was cheaper and easier than fixing his orange one.

is that the solid tailgate or the bad one?

That’s the good one. You should come over to the rust belt sometime.

picures of rust are tricky because that could be all surface like mine or pitted to hell

It’s somewhere in between, but no holes, which constitutes it as rust free where we are.

I’m kicking around the thought of driving down your way when school is out to hit some JYs for parts for this thing. He does have the rear bumper on the orange truck, and it’s fixable, but I don’t know if it’s worth fixing.

The LS and 4L60E are getting cleaned up and the computer is getting sent out to get tuned. He will pull the axles out of the orange truck to swap into the yellow one because they have better gears.

ahh, back in the day when the front clip actually came off as a unit.  :D 

It is really nice being able to lift the whole front end off. One of my favorite things about old cars.
