As far as handling...get the STB and the sway bars and you'll notice a BIG difference. There are threads for each of these mods.

FYI: You can get your steering wheel repainted too. Check out one of the dealership in your area and ask them who does their interior repairs on their used cars. The guy in my area will repair the SW for around $45.

BTW your gauges look good in the driver door. wink

welcome again and nice looking riv. I can't wait to see what you do with it. Is that an HWI tractor? I used to have one that looked a lot like it but mine had huge atv tires and a pulley swap. Those were the good old days.
