There are cheaper ones too. Saw one for half that price.

Well the goal posts have moved on me . Gave my buddy an 03 ram a few years ago . I owed him some money at the time . Well the old dodge made er back to me . It's just a little 2 wheel drive long box . I was looking for a project though ... maybe my old dodge is gonna be my practice truck before I build a nice one .

Finally got some parts I needed. On back-order for two months.

Sure hope they fit and work.

Sure is cool to have limited run, rare, older machines.

You get used to words and phrases like; back-ordered, discontinued, no longer listed.
That part number doesn't exist. and whatever else they can think to say about
something that was hard to get parts for even when it was new, let alone 35 yrs old.

Pulled the head-liner and door panels from one older ride.
A good cleaning, cut to fit some new sound deadener/heat/cool insulation.
Applied spray adhesive, and started to put it all back together.

I have hopes of at least being able to tell a difference.

It had nothing previously.

Next is the rear panels and possibly the floor.
