    Oh I know! I've been looking for Electric Doors for mine almost 2 years now, Nobody has Electric anymore :(

    I randomly found mine back in 2015 When I was searching on my C-List. $1250 Buy, Which wasn't bad.
    If they never used the Box as a Trash can I wouldn't be needing a new one!!! :(

    Boy, You're lucky to have that truck rust free! Mines so dang Surface Rusted and Rusty in general! 152K original miles The Diesel when I got it was swapped out almost right after the Stupid young kids bought it, then it sat for about 2 yrs with an SBC 305 in it! I'd chose the 6.2L over a 305 although a decent engine.

    You are making me so Jealous to do mine, Already June... ugh.

    The truck still has the factory motor with just 90,000 miles. Its never been in a wreck, only a fender bender. I pulled all the valve covers and spark plugs a few months back and everything is clean. I had the rear main seal replaced when the transmission was pulled because of a leak.


    I am the third owner, and I bought the truck 4 years ago from the second owner which really never drove it.

    Here is how I clean all my bolts and nuts. I use my reloading stainless tumber. Makes quick work on those rusty nasty bolts and nuts.

    Ok, finally done with the rear end of the truck. Still waiting on the bed, so I can start working on the wood.

I rebuilt the ac unit last year. And replace all the cooling equipment two month ago because of a over heating issue.

    It works great. I used it on my emission air injection tubes. The nuts were basically bonded to the tubes. By soaking them in the solution, I was able to free the nuts from the tubes. I got mine through my local Ace Hardware.
