Are you gonna use the design with gray on top? It'd look better than the other one.

its now street legal!


fenders mounted and bedsides rough mounted



here she is at home all done


headlight mod. im thinking of getting those chrome bulbs that turn orange when lit



yah. i need those other bulbs...



body lines finally matched up! (somewhat) head to cut stock bedrails off and get to the inner skin of the bed to drop the glass down enough



1" washers and 1/4" allen bolts holding it in place



all mounted up. hoping to get tire gate done by end of month with new tires/wheels



body lines again



Well the truck is now street legal and progress is going to a crawl since school started.

TO DO
-tire gate
-prep cab/fenders/bedsides for paint
-send off to paint
-tires/wheels

Wheels: Mickey Thompson Classic Locks (Black/Blue) (15x8)





TIRE OPTIONS: either 33's or 35's with 11.5-12.5 width with 1.5" wheel spacers


-Bridgestone Dueler AT




-BFG KM2




-Goodyear MTR Kevlar




-Toyo Open Country MT

My vote is for the BFG KM2's, I think they look the best.

you are using wheel spacers on the rear? if you are planning on making this a real prerunner stay away from spacers, they put unwanted stress on you studs, and the last thing you want is unwanted stress on your studs when you are hitting moguls and dunes...with that said, truck looks sick man

spacers in the back are very safe. ive known numerous guys that have run them and not a single bent stud. highly unlikley. the front is wear it wears out parts. mainly wheel bearings. but thats it. theyre just temporary
