    Might be because it's blaaaaaaaaack, but looks like you've already got a lift on it....

    A few questions for everybody else thats gonna ask...

    1. Is this a new to you truck?
    2. When was the last time the timing belt/water pump was replaced?
    3. When was the last time the lower ball joints were replaced?
    4. How many miles?
    5. Do you have any maintenance history on the truck?
    6. What is your intended use for the truck? This affects how we can recommend your "build."
    7. 4WD/2WD?



    How do you like it so far? :)

    Glad to see you dealt with the chrome mirrors at least. :rofl:

    The big question is What do you intend to do with the truck?!

    That will answer what's next. If you just want to upgrade it without function, that kinda makes you a poseur, doesn't it?

    Are we speaking French now? Because the Latin gives me enough trouble.

    I dunno man, it's just what we always called kids who dressed in skate rags but didn't skate when I was younger. I mean, I guess some people may write it "poser", but I always saw it written "poseur". Like, it's more insulting when it looks French, and I say that as someone who has a direct line of ancestors who came over from Cognac in the 1600s. I guess maybe it's the antonym of "sleeper" in the car world?

    Like, uh, those geniuses with V6 mustangs that have the fart can muffler on them to sound mean, but mean in the way a 8 year old girl sounds when growling like a bear.

    It was poseur when I was in San Diego back in the late 80s... So maybe it's "it's poser up here in not-so-south-socal" ;)

    That's a nice Truck. I'd just do maintenance and keep it clean. Like stated above what do you use Truck for? I would not touch it, just wax it w a diaper. Have you read all the threads at top of 1st Gen section? Lots of knowledge in here...
