New project, need connections, parts, plans

Project Freightrain in underway...

I picked up a 97' CCLB 4x4, I am driving as is for now when my pullin' truck breaks but this winter I am breaking it down to the frame and doing a "restore", not a frame off but tighten loose things and replace/ fix broken things and most importantly stop the rust, remove the rust, prevent the rust.

Anyway, as far as I can tell at this point I need a couple of doors and a cab corner, everything else looks repairable (surface rust), anyone have a hook up on replacement body parts? the internet search sites where you have to put in a request for a part suck, who knows when or if theyl get back to you and if the cost was worth your time anyway.

We will also be going through the engine and trans and plan on posting lots of pics (I will start a seperate thread for the build)

Thanks, I remember looking at them but they have Ford trucks split up to 1996 and then 1997 and up

with these guys should I just consider my truck a 96'?

they seperate the 97 kause it has 2 different body styles that year, the newer one is ugly in my opinion, but i like ebay for many parts, and raiding junk yards, i found a few in oklahoma that have alot of truck parts, and 2 or 3 here in southern cali, where are you located, im sure someone could point you to a JY in your area.

I know all the boneyards in my area... besides, I dont think I want used Michigan parts, theyll be as bad as whats on there

-----------------------------------------------------------

LMC truck looks great (I am very familiar with the year change over like the bastard child 98' f250) but I dont see any rear door parts at all through LMC and thats one of the things I need
