Hello everyone, I have read the forums here for quite some time and finally decided to make a profile and post my build. My name is PJ and as soon as I got my license at 16 I bought a 1989 Chevy C1500 for $500 of my hard earned money. Ever since then I have been messing around with it here and there trying to turn it into an "offroad truck" with my limited income and knowledge. When I first bought it, it had a flaky black paint job and was stock with a stepside bed. I got a normal bed off of my cousins friend, and rattle canned the rest of the truck white. I threw on the fabtech "long travel" kit in the front, and some deaver springs in the back and thought it was an offroad machine. After getting a new daily I decided to tear it down and do a complete build, with the help of my cousin, as this is my first project. We have been working on it for about a year now so we are pretty far along. Here it is in the beginning I have lots of pictures and will post more shortly!
