Fiberglass Installation pics

Front fenders finally arrived today. Fiberwerx 3" rise/flare. I uncranked the t-bars and still have a ton of clearance. The bedsides were finished and shipped today, so hopefully they are not far behind.













Had to enlist a little help to lift the bed off.

But it will LOOK good, nonetheless...

Have a long ways to go, but once the everything is done the whole truck will be painted. She is off of the road till then. And yes, she will be ready to pre-run the east coast 500, I hear the last 100 miles down I-64 are quite rough :-)

Yeah, the fenders fit pretty well out of the box. The passenger side took some playing around and sanding. Driver went right on. So far I really like the way its shaping up.

Still can't decide if I want to keep the stock hood or get a fiberglass one. No real advantage to fiberglass, but thinking while not go all out instead of regretting it later since it will be getting painted anyway.

Bed is surprisingly light, just awkward lifting it over the wheels. Had to get Kate a step to stand on, then it wasn't too bad. New bedsides are scheduled to be delivered on the 18th, so I have some time to play with the front till then.

Was going to go suspension lift, but wanted something different. Can't say I have ever seen a preruner "look" truck in person.
