Thought I had some more to post but I didnt. Will try to put some more up later.
I didn't actually do the painting I did a lot of the prep though. Had a buddy help me on most of it. He had painted several vehicles in the past. It has a few drips, dust spots, and a bug or 2 but it's better than it was. We painted it in an open job building and not a booth. For the budget I had and for the effect I was going for it turned out fine.

Looks like your buddy did a real nice job on the paint, and the graphics look good on it also.

Looks to be a good work pickup for you! Hopefully it serves you good for years to come

Love the older Dodges! Your truck looks great. I have a 97 1500 5.2l v8. no major problems at all!! I have 166k miles on it. Just had a body shop fix all the rust, took the cap off & will be getting a drop in bed liner in spring.

Ya. He really helped me out. There was no way I could afford a professional paint job at a body shop.

No kidding. Think this 5.9 gets around 10-12. Running mileage tests right now. I can literally see the gas gauge going down when hauling a bobcat tracked machine. Well its not that bad but some days it feels like it.

Your truck looks good! I am going to roll in bed liner one day this winter if I have a spare moment. Don't see that happening though. Crazy busy.

Hopefully this summer I will be purchasing a second truck for a crew to run. I am getting tons of work right now and cannot even imagine what march/april will be like.

This week I have been pulling the window tint out. Its been a mess.
Need a new bumper, do y'all think think something like a ranch hand bumper would be too heavy?
