Bruce since you said you were afraid of the air bags I assumed you had not taken it out of the column. Not sure what they would fetch but I remember days when used air bags would fetch in the $800 range a piece. I always wanted to mid engine with transaxle (Olds 455 from a Toronado) a short bed D50/ Plymouth Arrow. I preferred the Arrow just because it was a Plymouth branded truck. Don't know what the '85 looks like but the one I wanted was the narrow grille area & the truck looked kinda like a wedge. The later ones looked like a block (flat nosed) just like full size trucks.
Yes I would try my best to keep it all lower than the top of the bed and use a bed cover and quiet mufflers. ;^}
Woo Hoo! Went down to a buddy's place in Molalla yesterday, traded my suspension parts for his. The difference being, mine were rusty (from living in Ohio most it's life) and beat up (might have something to do with that hidden 9mm magazine I found), his weren't. As an added bonus, I got the Air Springs (that I didn't have) and level sensors! Got home too late to do anything with em. When the sun comes up, I'm going out to pressure wash and unload em from the truck.
Steve, Why would I take it to a shop to remove? It has been in my mind to have a custom wheel for it. If some one else already makes sumpin, I'll get it. I've already got the air bags out and set aside (way aside!) I should put em up on craiglist or ebay just to get rid of them. I've thought about taking them out in my field and setting them off, just to watch. (There is a procedure in the Lincoln manual on how to do it.)
Yeah, I've heard that commercial, I thought it strange. My 85 D50 has a boxed frame on it, I'd assumed everyone's truck frames were boxed.
