Here is my 84.
It started out as a dually flatbed. I shortened the frame, changed it to single wheel and put a short bed on it. I also swapped the motor, trans, and transfer case.

It's been in storage for a while during my house and garage build, but its getting close to being done and I can start it back up.

Just did a motor swap to an old school carb motor. Still tuning but it’s good to go so far. I’ll put the new plug wires on and hide all the other wires once it’s running correctly lol

The top is what started it all for me when I was a kid. My grandpa’s 79 longbed. It’s the reason why I have a love for longbeds, the reason I painted my 77 blue and the reason these wheels are now on it. I love that she looks stock at first glance but is far from it!! :love62:

That "project" is way closer to looking done than mine or @TMAN are. Looks damn good as is.
Thanks, it looks good from a few feet away but she needs work
Working on it lol
My 68 looks good from a few feet away but its far from okay, my rockers, corners and underside supports will need to be addressed in the near future. Unfortunately the fellow I bought it from didn't do a very good job. I'm afraid to media blast her knowing under that fresh coat of paint will reveal days and maybe month of body work that will need to be done.
