Thanked 20 Times in 20 Posts
digital camera.. use it.. one with the ability to do video better..
use it. and burn the stuff to dvd's..
you'll thank me when 2 years later you're looking at parts going, what the_______...
lable EVERYTHING.. zip lock bags and black markers are your friend..
notes on parts to help remember .
walk around the truck now. listing everything in 3 columes.. repair/ replace/modify

this will give you a working list of what you'll need, what you don't..
I break it down to engine/drivetrain/frame and chassis/ body/trim/interior/wiring

make a plan and stick to it.. know what you can do and what you'll have to farm out..
have a budget.. that doesn't break the bank.. more project go stillborn because of dreaming to big
take your cost that you think it'll cost and X2..

good luck..

get a service manual
and pick forum members brains for idea/hint/etc
and join forum/sites for your truck.. will be big help
is one.. there are tons..

one last thing.. shipping of parts gets costly.. and one reason that list is important.. it's cheaper in the long run to order a few big orders than to order a few here/there/ there/ and then again.. keep that in mind..
amd is down south from me.. and if I go to fla for a vaca.. I'll pick up body parts on the way back.. as crating/shipping gets mighty $$$ fast..
