82 Short Bed
So far it's got a flat bed and bobbed frame done by the previous owner.
I've got tons of plans for it: rears up front, chevys, high steer, lockers, gears, 35s, etc.

It's a work in progress. Check my build thread to keep up to date on the truck.

1980 all original

My 1-owner (me), 1980 - all original with the exception of rear mud flaps (from a later Toy). Still has the original spare (wheel/tire) under the bed. I?m beginning to remove some surface rust and roller paint a few panels whenever I get a spare minute.

Here's a couple picks of my 82 and one of my wife. Sorry about the thumbs, haven't managed to learn how to post the big pics yet.

Ski_freak - holy crap that truck is CLEAN. Wow, great looking engine bay as well. I think these 1st gens are making a comeback, I'm seeing so many being restored here on Yotatech. I'm watching every one of the build threads, you guys are giving me so many ideas.

slacker - I am patiently waiting on those Trekker conversions. Honestly, that is the one thing that would make the 1st gen perfect -- more room.

Here's my 83 on 33" Buckshots, FROR front bumper, 3" susp lift, V6 calipers & LC rotors, stock engine.

really nice trucks guys! and now i got a question, does anyone have a pic of the factory, stock rear bumper and/or know what the holes are for in the, i guess it would be called the rollpan? here's a pic of what i'm talking about

(don't mind my bumper in this pic, my buddies found kitty stickers and put them all over it b/c its a pu$$y bumper lol, it has since been removed)

I have a pic of my bumper which I believe is stock 82 sr5. I can post it tonight if no one else does. As for the bolts, hell if I know. Mine has them too.

I believe those holes you are referring to are to mount these 2 small rubber bump stops which probably help support the tailgate in the down position. If you look close in one of the pics of ski_freak's truck you can see what I'm talking about.
