Since it's a 5 speed it should get decent gas mileage. Probably mid 20's average and maybe a little more on the highway.

hey, i remember this truck now! i remember seeing it with the front suspension taken off and the wheel jacked up into the fender while it was up on jack stands.

Good to see its still coming along! i hope i'm not being mistaken by the truck, but if i am i appologise ahead of time. you said you've got it in pieces so i'm wondering if maybe you bought it from the previous owner who had it like how i described?

I remember seeing that pic as well. It was a red CC and it was from Indiana so it's probably the same truck. I'd guess the last owner didn't finish it and he bought it. I think Geeds bought his bumper cover or hood already painted off of the guy that originally had this truck. It's been a long time though so maybe I'm way off. :lol:

independent rear suspension???
yeah, but I think he said he was going to switch back to a solid axle. I can't remember for sure right now.

ya he's got a IRS from a Lincoln in it now but he said he didn't like it and wants to go back to a solid.

i hope he comes back/sticks around to talk to us more.

Sorry I forgot that I made this post. I didn't buy that 04 it was ruff. Yes I bought my red cc off of a guy that had this truck started but i have had to redo all of it. Ya Im thinking of going back to a solid axle just to get the truck done for now and then goin back to a irs after I get all of the parts that I need for it. Ya I dont post alot and I work all of the time to many projects.
