    Been welded and repaired, just look rough. Same 1 of the equalizer beams. Both transverse beams have looked to cracked in middle or rotted out and have been welded, there is still evidence of a crack on the rear 1 where someone welded and added that price of steel under it

    New Bumper, swing plate, new side hood emblem, cleaned up a bit. Amazing what a difference little things make.

    thank you I truly appreciate it. Interior is fair. Someone replaced the 1 dash panel with a price of stainless, the carpet needs to be replaced, couple cracks on the dash. All in all the it is complete and not to terrible. Once I get new carpet in the cab and new seats I will post some pictures.
