new springs and body mount bushings to start, lockers front and rear. The motor was rebuilt before it was parked, it had 44's on it, put the 35's on it few years ago but it stopped there.

Have fun, and enjoy the time with your Dad. The time you spend with him means a great deal to him now and will to you later. I have a 17 yo son and we build a lot and even though we can go through some money, it is priceless.

He turned 75 in July, been trying to do more with him. It will not be cheap but worth every bit.
