• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

This is a very nice CA truck that still has most of the original equipment. Truck runs, drives, and stops. The transmission shifts smoothly and the 4x4 works great. A/C system is complete but has not been gone through to make it functional again. Fans and heaters work. Custom lumber rack is included (needs new paint). Turned rear drums and installed new rear brake shoes, rear wheel cylinders, and rear brake hardware.

Things that are not original: H2 rims, bluetooth radio, Grant steering wheel, Reese receiver hitch and wiring, Holly 4BBL carburetor and aftermarket air cleaner. Probably some other small things here and there, too. I have a really nice, used steering wheel that's the right color. I'll include it if you want to go back to original. New water pump in box. No spare wheel.

Surface rust in bed, typical rust bellow windshield, some rust visible on the passenger side upper door pillar. There's a rust hole on the hood's bottom lip. The metallic green paint should buff up pretty nice, while the two-tone white could use a repaint, at least on the driver's side. All chrome trim is still there. Original bench seat could be reupholstered or given a new seat cover.

Due to the issues below, I would recommend it be towed home but that's up to you.

Known mechanical issues:
-I'm told it needs a valve adjusted since there's a small tapping noise when running
-The front right brake sometimes sticks after it's been parked for a while. The truck stops straight, though.
-The windshield has some fogging near the bottom corners and developed a crack. It should be replaced at some point
-Needs windshield wipers.
-Rearview mirror mount plastic is deteriorated
-Side mirrors could use new glass
-The block should be flushed and drained
-Registration is not current but there are no back fees
-Not insured
