i've got a old truck thats not really a good tow rig but great at everything else. trouble is i don't really need an 8' bed. i don't even really need a 6' bed. but its slow in the dirt cause its long, short wheelbase trucks do have their advantages. its one of those "almost free" projects that would just make the truck so much more fun to drive. but the truck is all original and been in the family since i was 5. discuss.
