Everybody with a rollpan!

THey mount on the inside of the bedsides and bed floor i believe, kinda riveted in there.

I personally wanna get one, because one your over s certain hieght, if someone runs up under you, the bumper wont save much.

ya it will, you will need to find or get a roll pan hitch. and they do make them for our trucks.

i wanted one but they dont work to well on a flareside, with those tabs in the back i think you have to do something special.

I wouldnt recomend a roll pan to be molded, for an offroad truck. With the amount of flexing and abuse it will take, it will crack quickly.

Also, about the hitch, they sell them at stylinconepts or godfather customs i believe. But im sure you could buy normal one, and have them weld it up behid the tag, and get the flip down tag mount.

The reciever is behind the license plate. Most regular hitches would interfere with the rollpan, and even if one did fit, it would look goofy hanging out there, as it would stick out well past the rollpan.

Personally I don't think that rollpans belong on off-road trucks. It just makes it that much harder to get into the bed and is more of a "fashion over function" thing, which makes it more for street than off-road. That's just my personal opinion though.

if you need to get into the bed, drop the tailgate its only a few inches higher than the bumper would be. and if you are high enough off the ground the bumper serves virtually no function anymore anyways so why not look cool. devils advocate

Roll Pans w/ 4x4

well for some of you that have a flareside, here's what I know....you can either go the sir michael's route which bolts across the top of the roll-pan the edge of the bed, right under the edge of the tailgate. Or you can get the one like I have that bolts underneither w/ those stupid tabs.







Those are the only pics I got of mine...hope this helps.

Im in the process of getting my pan on right now (mar-k brand)....grinding down the spare tire housing is quite a pain in the ****. Im getting ready to pre-mount it at this point before it goes in for paint later in the week.

The mar-k that i have is a steel pan that can either be bolted on or welded on...im going the bolt on route incase it ever needs to be removed. It bolts to the bed, not the frame, so it will work fine with a body lift. I should have pics posted up towards the end of the week or early next week so just keep an eye out.
