My first car
Black 1979 J10 Pickup (got it around 1995)

33" ground hog tires

6" body lift

6" suspension lift

 

pros
I could driver anywhere and never get stuck

No one had one like it
 

cons
Except for ice which it would get stuck on

Rusty

No AC

Hard to find parts

mods and fixes history
Pioneer deck

Pioneer equalizer
Pioneer speakers

Two 500 W amps

Two 12" subs in one box behind the seat

I was always replacing parts on it

Current Status
When I left the home and was in the military my dad sold it. I can't be mad at him since he bought it for me and it was rusting away anyway. I probably would have got in trouble with it soon or later anyway. I was always four wheeling where I shouldn't.
