Default Project No Hope. My first official build

Well I got this truck a year ago with hopes of having it done before the end of summer. That was shot down when I lost my job. But now I'm back working and here we go!! Pulled it out of the weeds, washed it up good and now getting the pole barn cleaned up to move it in. It started life as a 1985 Chevy Silverado Long Box 1/2, 4wd. With a 5.0, 700r4, and a NP208 tcase. It had the drivers gas tank removed. The wiring for the passenger side tank is cobbled together. It was a mud truck when I got it. As it sits now it has a 3" body lift, and 6" suspension lift. 12 bolt 8 lug rear axle, and a 10 bolt 6 lug front. Both are coming out in place of a 14 bolt rear and 10 bolt front both 8 lug. Not the best choice but for the budget I'm on it will work for now.
