I hate Astros! My dad loved them so we had 5 or 6 while I was growing up. Lights look pretty good, but I would have went with round lights.

Astro is that van.
I like the square lights better too, I think they fit in better since they are shorter. Round ones are taller and would have looked kinda out of place.

That truck would be so much fun to mess with.

I'd have that bed bobbed and a SAS done to it by now!

From a quick google search, looks like they take the bed, cut a section out to put the tail gate closer to the fenders.

well when you are offroading, it helps give you more clearence. say you were goin through a deep ditch with tall sides. once you get in it then the back of the bed might hit the dirt and crunch it. thats why. in my mind it ruins the bed
