Very nice truck, pretty clean, looks different with the 88-98 rear bumper on the truck.You gonna leave it or go for a rollpan or go for the original style? Otherwise nice ride and welcome aboard  ;D .

front bumper chrome has a lot of scratches. back bumper appears to be a cheap one...   would like to replace both with new ones (without the rubber bumpers on them) I like the older style bumpers...i guess you could say.

also planning on slightly wider/bit taller tires...maybe a corvette rallye wheel. Recovering the seat, new carpet and line-x complete the list...for now :-)

Thanks! Looks like your bumper prices are better than I've seen other places. :-)
I have a carpet kit...now looking for seat upholstery. (I didn't see the upholstery listed on your site though...)

My seat appears to have an aftermarket covering. (Looks similar to the "Regal" silver with black vinyl that I've seen advertised elsewhere). I don't mind that look/feel...and would go with that again. Defintely not a fan of the stock velour, and vinyl is ok, just not the most utilitarian.

Upholstery kits have become a chore as of right now to get them in the catalog.  If I know the year and what colors you are after we could go from there...
This is a link to the colors for seats:

Nice looking truck.  It reminds me of mine when I first bought it, except yours is a lot cleaner and in better condition.  I like how you did the exhaust too.

sorry for the delay. the wheels came on the truck when i purchased. As posted above...they might be van wheels?? it appears they were painted to match the body. Unfortunately, I think I have to get rid of them. I want a wider tire...and the wheels will not accomodate.
