    I've had this RN12 in the garage for three years since I bought it. Finally got the body work done and a new coat of paint. Excited to daily drive it this summer!

    Also replaced all brake components (lines, cylinders, etc), rebuilt the floors/cab mounts (in another thread), thorough engine maintenance (8rc), 2" lowering blocks in the back, and a million little fixes here and there.

    Remaining to-do list:
    - Bedliner (this weekend)
    - Re-cover the dash (anyone know if the dash comes out easily without removing the windshield?)
    - Refurbish the original hubcaps (yep I'm going stock)
    - Might lower it a bit more, but I'm not into going crazy low.
