if your going to buy a rollpan, buy a metal weld in one, not a piece of shit fiberglass one, especially one that will warp and crack with the heat coming through those holes for the exhaust

Your truck, your choice, in the long run, I'd agree with Smakes. But fiberglass isn't a big issue either

metal one will cost you less and youll never have to replace it unless it gets fucked up.... and with the weld in ones you can screw it in anyway and not weld it in

that roll pan is ugly as shit. dont get it. yeah you could always buy another, but why put yourself in a position where youll need to. better to do things right the first time. but hey, its your choice.

Keep in mind that where your exhaust tips exit that pan, you're gonna have to have the pipes SOLID mounted. Not on hangers. The rest of the exhaust can be on hangers, but at the end it'll have to be hard mounted. Otherwise the tips will hit the pan under any flex, while hitting bumps, and possibly while revving.. Unless you have small tips and large holes cut out of the pan..

I didn't really look into the ebay post, but look for a license plate bracket on hinges if you ever plan to tow.
