    The truck looks to be in decent condition. Around here a lot of the old trucks are completely rusted out. Look at the front cab mounts because those normally go bad but you can buy the piece to weld in there to fix it. What motor, trans and t-case are in it?

    well you originally said you fell in love with the body style, why would you get rid of the stepside? other than the headlights and the orientation of the marker lights, that truck is the same as any 73-87 pickup. if you wanna do a flat bed, go buy any 73-87 fleetside that are a dime a dozen. you gotta keep the stepside bed, they're so rare now, you would be foolish to not keep it that way.
