Picked Stinky up from Eastern WA last month from Pepe. Got it setteled in the shop to start stripping out the interior and remove the chipping exterior paint.










Tried to get the top off but all the bolts were rusted in place and the rear window was ceazed. Had to grind down the bolts on the top and unbolt the rear window. I dont think that top has been off in a very long time. Aparently the rear bumper needs to be tweaked too, the tailgate didnt want to extend fully.







So far so good, more to come.:thumbup

WoooHooo... and now poor ol' Stinky starts to come back to life! :rockon


Uh... sorry 'bout that bumper swap there Tommy. :brownbag
The gate wouldn't open, so I couldn't check out the final fit.

Been a while since we've seen you lurking around. Welcome back. Subscribed - is this going to follow the path of the ol' blue buggy?
Na, I'm done with the hard core wheeln. Modest build/restore for a family trail rig.

wha? you didn't like the porno interior? I thought I seen your ol' lady perk up when I mentioned that spiff. :histerica ;)
As for the 6", that was definitely claimed at some point. I can't remember if anyone along the way took a real good look though.
Obviously, my ignorance is legendary. :brownbag

I didnt mind it but there was dry rot and at some point was a home for some small varmints. Starting fresh and replacing it all. Aparently the original color was red.

Looks more like a 4" lift but I need to do some measuring before I find out for sure.

Paul and I had discussed that when I first went down there; it definitely had some lift, as two chunky monkeys were able to fit under without putting it on jackstands. But without any definite information, we just left it at that.

I'm well aware of Stinky's history NAMELESS. Maybe you should read up on LFD and find out why it's named that.


What's next on the to do list?
Just giving ya shit, its all good.:thumbup

Trying to get it all stripped down so I can pressure wash and find out how much body work is needed. Going to go through everything and make a list. LMC truck is going to love me this year.
