Default 1983 F150 Project

I've never had a 4x4, so this is my first project.
Picked up an 83 F150 std cab 4x4 this week. It's puke/dark green with a white stripe down each side. It has a 1987 Mustang 4 bbl 302 in it, headers and dual exhaust. It's sitting on 15"x10" white wagons wrapped in 33x12.5 Generals with pretty decent tread.
I got it for $800. My plans are a sweet mud/snow/hunting/shits and giggles truck.

The bad:
busted drivers side tail light
no rear bumper or mounts
body is an 83 Ford lol (rust,dents)
trans lines need replaced
oil pan/pump needs replaced
tailgate handle not functioning

I replaced the tail light yesterday (junkyard $7), found a bumper in like new shape, but can't get it until next week (funds).

I'm going to update the post with pics and also with my current repairs/idiocy lol.

Replace the hood release today ($7 junkyard). Removed the tailgate. Removed the bedliner, saw the holes, put the bedliner back in lol.
Looks like I may get crazy and replace the bed, tailgate, seats....
