Just got my first Lightning.....

.....and it looks like I'm in the minority, because it's a first Gen! I've always wanted one of these trucks, and tripped on this one for less than $3K!

Here's some pics, I had to change the I-beam and radius arm bushings, and put a MAP sensor and brake son it, but other than that all I had to do was buff out the paint. Lemme know what you guys think:

This is when I first brought it home a few weeks ago:

and after a few hundred gallons of sweat, here's the finished product:
