The truck was repainted at some point in time but it looks great, a few nicks and chips here and there but that is to be expected. All the trim is nice, it's a real head turner and sounds amazing. Came with dual tanks but I removed them both and replaced with a new 20 gallon tank in the rear with all new fuel lines pump and filters. Truck drives great and all works as intended.
It also has a new stereo with Bluetooth head unit and 2 new door speakers. Also has removable center console/arm rest. I've put a lot of time, money and love into rebuilding this truck and am not in a position where I need to sell it, I'm just testing the waters, but if the right price comes along I will let it go. Clean & Clear Title in hand.
