Hey guys just thought I would share my new find/toy. I picked up a 1981 Chevy LUV Diesel with less than 90k miles. When I bought it, it had been sitting for over seven years. I put it on a trailer and pulled it home. Put some injector cleaner in it and fresh diesel and it cranked right up. I changed out all the fluids and turned up the torsion bars and did a home made suspension lift on the rear lifting it about three inches and stiffing it for the weight of the four wheeler. Then I picked up these wheels and tires for$75 and slapped them on for another couple inches. I took the bed off and made this flatbed so the four wheeler could fit in the back. But it looks like I won't be needing a four wheeler with this truck. I took it through a field to put out corn today and never spanned a tire even after all this rain. At almost 40 MPG and $500 invested i think its a good deal. My friends keep making fun saying 'are you gonna put a blind on the back and hunt off it' but honestly had thought about this old port potty I have to make a blind out of. Taking that and doing exactly that? We will see tho.
