Default New to Mopar, Yet Excited!! Suggestions needed.

Hey, just joined the forum and very excited to become a member of the community. Story is i inherited what was my deceased grandfathers hunt/fish truck. It is a 1986 Black and Gold Power Ram, 318, 4x4, Automatic, Bone Stock. True miles unknown, supposedly rebuilt motor, and decent body, no real rust to be worried about or speak of. My goal is to make it "nice" first (relative term i know haha) and reliable and go from there. First major projects include, but no limited too:
1) Go thru all the wiring (things like dash lights, some gauges, and brake lights do not work)
2) Spray In Bedliner the interior
3) General Tune Up

I put a few pics up, tell me what you think (the mud was a one time thing, plan to stay out of that stuff)

That truck looks to be in very good shape

You may find a few things on the LMC website

thanks for the replies and compliments guys. Yes, the trucks body and paint are in great shape and honestly its the reason i am so motivated to make it nice/semi restore it. I want something different, and NO ONE drives first generation dodges in my area. As me and my buddy dig deeper into resolving some of the obvious issues i will be right back asking questions and getting help for sure
