    I already used old pics so no before pic. but just got it back an hour ago.
    There's buffing compound all over the dirty wheels so it'll look much better with those shined up and I think I'll take the trim off the other wheel wells as I think that looks better bare (?). also, it gleams in the sunlight.

    My back up truck is a 1990 Ram, too. Mine is a swb though. Looks great.

    Tks guys! It was my grandfathers and my father gave it to me 12 years ago with 60K on it and I put another 90K of hard lawn maint. miles and then left it parked under a tree for 4 years when the timing chain skipped. It rotted and the paint clearcoat peeled etc....

    Slowly bringin her back, do you guys think i should try and find the trim for the wheel well or ditch the other 3? and I have the black part that went on the rear trim there, I just gotta put it on.

    Truck looks nice!

    I agree with leaving the trim off too. All that trim does is collect dirt behind it and then rusted out in that area.
