Newb Here....1980 4x4 Pickup...Loveland

Looks pretty dead in here but I wanted to post anyway. I just picked up a pretty rough pickup so I have something to tinker on. I just love these old trucks and had to get another one(I've had an '82 and 3 different 1st gen 4Runners). Just curious if there are any other pre-84 guys in the Northern Colorado area?
Thanks.
Mark

Here she is in all her glory(sorry for the massive last pic):

Thanks. Added pics above^.
Not 100% sure on plans yet. I just want to start by fixing it up, replace broken/missing pieces and parts. Mechanically it runs pretty well, probably needs a tune up and then see if I can get the factory air working and get it to pass emissions. Then long term do a little paint and body work, perhaps a small lift/level and tires(gonna keep what appear to be the stock wheels?). I just want a clean little truck to cruise around occasionally, hit a trail once in a while and honestly just use it to haul stuff around
