Just out of curiosity, why do you do this? Is it fun, like a hobby? Is it cheaper than buying the truck brand new? I've heard of people doing rebuilds for older vehicles or show cars, but not for a daily driver. Interesting thread and I want to see how this turns out too

I know you only need one headlight, but I just replaced my quad headlights in mine and have them listed. So if you want to go for the quads, I know a guy. Looking forward to see how it all pans out. Best of luck!

Update on the rebuild. Getting there. Should be done in a few weeks. Got a whole new bed. Pretty sure it has a factory spray in liner. Here's some pics

I think this is cool. If I could do body work I would totally do this kind of thing. I imagine it is fun, satisfying and saves money on buying new

Almost ready for paint. Basically the whole truck will be painted minus the roof.
