I've been tinkering around with the truck a little bit. I painted a new hood, removed some emissions things and ordered a pathfinder front end. Still needs more low. Additional pics to come.

Here is a pic of my work's shop truck next to mine.

A hanger redrill is cheap for the rear. You can get around 1" drop out of that. Not to mention, when you start lowering by modifying the leafs, the hanger can drag on the ground pretty good if you don't redrill and trim.

I had a fab shop attempt my hanger re-drill and the drill must have been crooked. Not really sure how I am going to fix it at the moment but its in the works.

Got the pathfinder front end installed. Still have to paint the grill and corner lights.

Nice, reminds me of my old red truck that I did the Pathy swap on.

I wish there were more of these around. I never thought I would have such a hard time finding parts. When I had my 95 pathy in 2009 they were everywhere. I think the cash for clunkers program destroyed a lot of beautiful trucks.

It's awful how few there are in the yards these days and the ones I do find are always 96-97 or rusted beyond recognition. I got really lucky to have recently found a 90 4wd in the one yard I frequent with the ignition switch still in it with the key. The rest have been picked clean by others and myself. I rarely see anything of worth pop up on CL anymore either. Always broken frame 4wd trucks. I got lucky when I found the ad for my parts truck and jumped on it but even these days my parts truck is starting to look bare. 8 years ago when I bought my green truck I could find these trucks everywhere in the yards and that's when I did my most buying/stocking up on parts.

I made a pretty nifty PVC bike rack for the bed. I'm not happy with it yet but it works for the time being.
