    It has been on 10/30 Mobil-1 since near new.
    It's a G80 truck with posi.
    Torco synthetic 85-140 in the rear end (unless he changed it).

    Here's some pics of when he finished the paint:

    Mouz- I thought you had one last year and the wife vetoed it? Take your time. I'm not 100% on selling.

    IF he does sell the truck, someone will be getting a "near new" 98. I am a "preventative maintenance" guy that hates to be stuck on the side of the road. At around 70,000 miles, I replaced several pieces. The AC clutch had started to rattle, so I put a new AC Delco compressor on, along with new idlers, tensioner and belt. I had already freshened the front end, but he has since put urethane bushings in. The ball joints are new Delco also. I have a great outlet for Delco parts, so I couldn't afford to put cheap stuff on the truck. It was cheaper for me to put on AC Delco and they always seem to last the longest anyway.

    He has since done the alternator and (I think) the starter. I had put NEW rotors on the fronts and freshened the rears along with seals. I had a thread on HOT BOAT that had all of the new parts listed, but that is long gone.

    The interior was still like new. GM velour. It was originally a leather truck, but that doesn't work for me and lake trips. The dealer couldn't find one as loaded with cloth, so they swapped seats with a cloth truck they had on the lot and deducted the cost of leather. So, the interior coding would be leather, but it has velour. It is also one of the only trucks of that bodystyle with rear-window-defroster. All of the ones I looked at didn't have it and I never thought it was even available. I jumped in this one on the lot and just happened to notice it in the rear view mirror. Power driver's seat, with manual passenger - 60/40 split bench. I always had 6 people going to the lake, so I didn't get buckets. It's a full six-seater.

    I always wanted to do the Davis Unified (DUI) distributor and wires on this Vortec motor. I have used them on other non-vortecs and find them very efficient. DUI has a specific distributor/module/wire set for the 7400 Vortec.

    The suspension is all Bell-Tech, 5/7 drop with AirLift bags and compressor.

    Unless he has done it already, I would be replacing the radiator with a new Delco unit and also the water pump, upper/lower/heater hoses, thermostat and fan-clutch. Just because at 100,000 I feel it would be time. I would also get a new fuel pump/sender assembly - unless he's done it.

    I don't like vehicles to show their age, so I was constantly shining the un-thought-of areas. I waxed the door-jambs about every third wash, along with cleaning the motor. Every time I washed it, I washed between the bed and cab also. I even used to wash the tail-gate jambs. He hasn't used the truck for near the dirty work I used to, so it should be exceptionally clean. I used to haul firewood, engines, transmissions - all sorts of dirty items. I had a plastic drop-in bedliner, as I find them easier to wash out. I believe he had one sprayed-in.

    Oh, and he changed the front end to GMC.

    Here is another pic that he sent me after the wheels were put on:

    Life is all about ass, you're either covering it, hauling it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, or behaving like one.
