    Yeh same color for now cant really afford a paint job at the moment just going to get the new fender and bumper matched. As far as the interior goes its actually in pretty good shape with the exception of the driver seat mount. I'll ake some pics here in a couple of days when i get back going to try and put all the new parts on and detail it!

    Welcome to the madness and thanks for your service. What branch?
    I have 230k on my 5.0 and it still pulls strong.
