You can't tell too bad in the photo too, but my cab corners are rotting out, along with the rocker panel, and the section of floor-board along the rocker.
It needs a steering pump, steering box, probably due for a motor swap, and I think one of the body mounts is starting to deteriorate.
The truck was in even worse shape when I bought it, and part of me thinks it's about time to take the plow and dump off and get a f-450 with a better body and a V-10 or 460.
Basically I bought the dump and plow for 3K and got a free truck. I've gotten as much or more use out of it as I could expect for a truck in the shape that was in before I started working on it.
