I figured as much when I couldn't find anything to support that option in 3 days of internet research haha. No dual batteries, rear wiring harness, spring overloads, etc. on the truck when I looked at it either. A swaybar and the dual shocks up front so appears to just have the front end handling package. Drove really well down the road for it's age. Ended up picking the truck up so now I'm part of the club! Might post a pic or two when I get it home tomorrow.

Took a little longer to get some pics up than I thought. Busy schedule and crappy weather. Anyway here it is. A little surface rust on the back of the box and the front passenger fender is a little roughed up. Other than that it's pretty straight. Extra mirror mounts on the doors must have been from some larger mirrors it originally had.

Looks like a pretty clean truck. My experience with bumper mounted hitch balls has not been good.

Agreed. It will get a proper receiver hitch put on it if I ever decide to start pulling things with it. I've got a '96 1 ton diesel and my '03 F-150 to handle most of those duties though.

Thanks for the comments. Seems like a pretty solid starter truck for what I paid for it, and just enough wear on it that I won't be afraid to use it. It will take a good cleaning under the hood (mice tried to move in), new plug wires, adjust timing, a little carb tuning, and finish properly getting rid of the emissions system to make it really run well.

Well I filled the front fuel tank for the first time yesterday. It's either got a rock between the skid plate/tank mount and the tank or the tank is rusted through. Hopefully it's just a rock and I can weld the tank. I couldn't seem to get a hose through the fill neck all the way into the tank to siphon out the 20 gal of gas I put in so it's dripping out on the ground. Only thing I could figure was there is some kind of anti-siphon baffle right at the tank.

Truck was running on the rear tank when I bought it. Go figure.

If the "unleaded only" orifice was punched out at some point in time, which was common back in the day, it is possible that orifice is lodged farther down in the fill tube.

I dropped both the tanks on my '78, and I don't remember seeing any kind of a restriction on either tank, but there were some changes in gas requirements between '78 and '79 also.
