What Should I Do??? What Would You Do??

I just fixed her up. All stock never a wire cut or hole drilled. I love the customs. What would you do?

Too nice to hack in my opinion. Get out the knee pads.

Very nice truck you have. Personally I like them stock, but it's yours and you can do what you want.

I think I had better put that under protective custody so you will not be tempted to do any mods to it! Send me your address...I will be right over...LOL!

I see the space needle in your avatar...are you a Seattle local? Lets get together and compare notes. I am doing a full stock restoration on my 1968 50th Anniversary Longhorn.

Welcome to the board if I have not already offered that greeting!

Don't touch it like everyone else said. That's a mighty nice looking truck, too nice to cut up.

I'll tell you what... you need to keep that baby stock and like a rock! Go fudge up a bastard truck that no one cares about. The bone stock trucks are the only thing keeping the value of these trucks alive!!

I agree with everybody. That truck is just too nice to customize. Maybe a set of wheels or anything easy to change back to stock. Tell the wife you'll take her on a cruise and then go buy a canoe. LOL

Throw some new wheels on it first, and then get a new project no matter what the old lady says.

The MOST I would do is put custom wheels and tires on that beauty. That pickup is WAY to nice to customize more than that.

I'd put nice wheels on it, but nothing else!

Just remember, as far as a new project goes -- Its easier to ask for forgivness than permission!

I think as stock as it looks in that pic, that I would leave it EXACTLY like it is. I don't think any aftermarket wheels would be an improvement because of it's almost 100% totally stock look.
