the only bad thing is the drivers side floorboard is pretty well rotted away and the other side is ina little better shape, does anybody have any ideas on how to fix it cheap? but making it last also, so far it will be just a winter beater but if it drives good and doesnt act up i may keep it londer and fix it up even more.

They have to be cut out and replaced.
Go over to comancheclub.com.

All you want to know about these trucks.

There are multiple threads in the your projects section of people replacing their pans....

I would highly recommend doing this as well. A short cut in rust repair is a bad idea.

5 quarts of 10w30 motor oil, LOTS of gear oil 80w90 (10 quarts?) for transmission/Tcase/differentials , DOT3 brake fluid, power steering fluid dont think there is a special kind.

and some antifreeze if you are going to flush the radiator, probably 2 jugs.

I'll be honest i've never changed my Tcase fluid, i just assumed it used gear oil , if my trany does why wouldnt it? Although i will admit it does suprise me alot to hear it uses ATF, which begs the question, what kind?

TCase does take ATF. I just put new fluids in mine last year when I switched over to manual tranny from the auto.
Gear oil in the tranny and ATF in the transfer case. I don't remember what kind I used, but it was pretty standard stuff.

ok thank you for letting me know that, so do you think that 10 quarts of gear oil will be enough to get the tranny and diffs. do i need anythnig special for the transmission or will just regular straight gear oil be fine?

I used 4 and a half quarts in the tranny and a quart and half for each differential. 7 and half total.

Should be able to at any hardware store that makes keys.
If not, check online. I've seen them on ebay.
