I found a 1991 with the same color interior and was able to get a driver's side panel. I didn't need that side but I grabbed it anyways , it looked better than the one I had on the truck. The car was hit on the drivers side door so I wasn't t able to get the passenger panel or dash out

Thanks to you guys getting direct bolt on seat was a no brainer
 
The drivers side seat had one position only and that was straight up. Not very comfortable. Grabbed some from a 95 Pathfinder. The drivers side had a burn mark on it and the passenger a few stains. They were 35.00 a piece

Muffler was rusted out and part of it missing
 
The donor was all there and it pretty good shape. Luckily the donor was easy to remove. The one on the truck was rust welded on had to take a Sawzall to it. I paid 25.00 for the donor. It sounds so much better

You think I can use the old drivers side one to make a passenger side one? The truck didn't come with a passenger side panel.They're pretty tough to come bye.
I was even contemplating taking a hack saw to the crashed door to try and open it to get at the panel and dash. My dash is horrendous. It.doeant just have cracks. It has chunks missing from it.
The more i think about it the more I like the idea of the form fitted dash you lay over the existing dash

Mirror the current panel and you should have the passenger panel. I would suspect they KISS'd it back then... I suspect you can still order the clips. Find an amrrest, off anything, that you think you'll like. Get what you need for the cover and stuffing. JoAnns, or your local sewing store is good for this stuff.

Where's the truck? A yard? Ask if you can sawzall it out... they may even supply the power cord. Take your saw and a couple extra blades. Never know what you'll get into. Got demo blades? GL...

95 D21 Bumper

My bumper had a big dent on one side. I found a bumper from1995 D21. Its not easy find a 30 year old bumper that isn't dented up. This one isn't perfect but it beats spending 400 to 500 for a new one. I think spent 55 dollars.
Just cleaned and spit shined it. The brackets may have been bent a little because this onerous like it sits a little higher then the last one.
I just need to find the license plate lights. I've been reading that some early model external will fit?

I gave it my best shot with a Sawzall and crowbar and still couldn't get that door open to get to that panel. I can't believe I did all that for a piece of plastic and cardboard

New tires and cleaned rims
 
https://youtu.be/8Ef0LLX622E
It's amazing what a set of tires and cleaning the rims changes the look of the truck. The tires are Dat1 from Walmart 72.00 each. I removed the rims and cleaned the back of the rims and wet sanded them. I probably should have painted the back of the rims because I went through the paint in some areas.
I buffed out the chrome and really brought them back to life.
I also sanded some of the surface rust on the frame and painted it
