New from WV

I've been gathering up trucks for a couple years and I'm ready to start putting one together. J10's in this part of the country are hard to come by and I've came up with 3. White, 1981 258/4spd truck. Black 1981 258/4spd truck. Black 1979 258/3spd truck. White one is a driver, complete and rusted beyond repair. The black 81 stepside is a driver but the cab has serious problems with cab mounts and floors, bed and front clip are awesome. The black 79 is missing the motor but the cab is almost perfect so I think I got all the pieces finally.

Looks like he's using SmugMug. Never heard of it before. Let us know if it's any good, I'd LOVE to ditch Photobucket.

It is Smug Mug, it wasn't cheap but I couldn't even get photobucket to load with all the adds. I like it so far seems legit and fast..

Welcome. Three to make one sounds about right, from my experience. Enjoy the build!

Finally got some time to work on the little sportside today and after a year in a field it runs, and after some brake work I even took it for a little drive....

No the cab on the 79 is going on the 81 sportside though, I'm probably going to ditch the fiberglass fenders and the grill. I wanna make it a gladiator if I can find the gladiator rear fenders, grill and pie plates.

Welcome! Just a heads up, someone on here is probably looking for those glass fenders.
