**HOW DO I CHANGE MY USERNAME PLEASE DM ME OR SOMETHING I'LL REMOVE THIS PART OF THE POST ONCE MY USERNAME IS NOT MY FULL REAL NAME** ## Overview Found an '87 R10 last month on craigslist while perusing for a miracle. It was 80k original miles, sold once in '87 the year it was originally bought with 2,700 miles, spent about 10 years unregistered presumably as a farm truck and then was registered each year after with an average of 1,200 miles a year on the odometer readings. ## Background The reason I was looking at a squarebody truck like this was we use to have one when I grew up in Virginia mowing lawns with my dad. I had some cash from a previous truck sale to use towards fixing up this truck. The previous owner was 90 so the last 10 years the truck has not had many miles added to the odometer. From what I've told it set under a carport most of the time on a treed property. ## Paint / Body work The day after I purchased it I put it in for a paint job at the local highly reviewed Maaco. It took twice the time expected but I'm very happy with the outcome. Because the truck's body was in such good shape I opted not to fix any of the dents in the body and instead leave them in for character. I'm very happy in the choice since the combination of gloss black and a smooth body end up with a mirror like surface on a lot of the truck. ## Suspension The truck is still sitting on the factory springs as best I can tell. Looking to upgrade them to get clearance for 33" tires. TBD.
