Well everyone I did it. I was given a offer on the truck that was not finished but the deal could not be pasted up. I sold her, it will be getting a frame off resto from a guy who had this as a teenager and wanted one again. Good friend got a great deal from the transaction also so I'm happy. So the only jeep to do now is to finish the body and paint on Pyro's baby.

I'm going to finish a Hobie cat and my Glastron speed boats and fix up my wife's new toy I got her. I got her a bronco she has been wanting for a while now.

Rocky the guy that bought the truck will be looking for a 360 if you have any I can send him your way. He hasn't picked up the truck yet. It is over at Pyro's right now. He is coming to get it in the middle of Oct.
