  1. I need some pictures. I live in Denver and the truck is for me while I am waiting for the 2020 Broncos to come out (I had a 72 and a 96). But, can’t spend too much money per the wife.

    So, if this works out I will have you take it to a mechanic, and if that is a good report and we agree on a price then I’ll fly out and buy the truck and drive it back to Denver.

    Send pix please.
