new guy!

nmchuck
Just found this site, I know its going to be a great resource!

I just picked up a 1981 4x4 flareside with a C6 and 351M.  Body is rough, but it runs and drives after a little work and seems pretty solid.  It has a 4"(??) lift and 33" tires, a little tall for my liking but I am warming up to it.

Looking forward to fixing this rig up, and using the info and knowledge of this group to help me along the way.

Welcome!  Glad you joined.  

Nice truck.  Hope you'll start a thread in the main section or projects where we can follow what you do to and with it.

And where's home?  I ask because we have a map (Bullnose Forum/Member's Map in the menu) and we can add you with a city/state or zip.

Welcome. You'll love this group. I've been a member since May and they have helped me nearly every weekend! Very knowledgeable and quick to respond. I think some folks just sit around and wait to answer questions here!

Thanks for the replies, good to know there are others out there willing to take on these old rigs!

I have to admit I am attempting to bring back my college days, I had a 2WD flareside back in the 80's and it is one of those trucks I wish I had never sold.

You can bet I'll take advantage of the folks that know about these trucks and will be adding to the project thread I started (thanks to Gary for the nudge...)

Welcome, Chuck!

Believe me, the information on Gary's pages and the terrific help from our Bullnose buddies here is priceless.  I've gotten lots done to my '85 F150 with their advice.  Heck, one day you might get mine!  (advice, that is)
