      Trying to trade my truck to get back into a dub but I'm open to any trades really. Primarily, I'm looking for a pickup. A caddy would be gold but I can't have a rust bucket that doesn't move. I need something I can DD. A van or any truck is also okay.

      Its a 1988 Body, sitting on a 1990 frame. The PO said the original body had hundreds of dents and dings from tree branches and brush. He bought an 88 as a donor vehicle and lifted the original body off the chassis and popped the 88 on. As a result, you have a 1990 engine, frame, suspension, tranny, etc, but all exterior parts are for an 88.

      81k original miles on the 1990 stuff. Unknown mileage on the body. 5 speed shifts great.

      The Good:
      New Speakers
      New Thermostat (installing tomorrow)
      New Fuel Filter (installing tomorrow)
      Newer plugs (replaced by PO)
      Newer pads and rotors (again by PO)
      Rebuilt drums (PO)
      New Badges
      Newer plastic front bumper
      New rubber floor
      New black leather bucket seats
      Newer Plugs (PO)
      Newer Distributor (PO)
      Newer Wires (PO)
      Newer clutch (PO)
      Newer tires on Chrome Mustang Mags.
      Spray on bed liner
      New window sweeps
      New locks
      New speakers & stereo

      The Bad:
      Currently running rich, hoping the fuel filter will fix this.
      Its an old truck so it rides rough, could probably use new shocks to soften it up.
      Truck bed has some surface rust on the rails but nothing rotting through.
      Has slop in the wheel from the steering box needing an adjustment, fixing tomorrow.
      Needs speaker boxes for the mid's I installed. 88's had dash speakers, 90s had door speakers. I have a 90 dash with 88 doors so I have no speaker mounts. Currently have them wedged in place between the seats.

      There's probably more I'm forgetting but yea. Trucks in Howell, NJ but I'm commuting twice a week to Ocean City, NJ for this month.

      Not looking to sell, just trade. PM me for more details.



      Gonna take more pictures soon.

      Really only looking to trade. If the offer was good enough I'd take it but I don't really want to list a price because then I'll have too many people shooting me lowballs looking for an outright sale.
