Have you ever heard of reading? Did I say he needs to be 30' high? No, I didn't. I just want to know what the advantage of the dovetailed bed is on a truck that's gonna be dragging its frame on stuff all over the trail. Needs less bodylift and more suspension lift.

Yeah its a 4x2, I'm gonna dovetail the bed on it too. I say let's try and say our feelings, and not bite our tongues. Got something to say? Say it. Thats what I say.

Don't tell me that hurt your feelings. Just stay tuned I never said that I was finished with the truck. It will be a little taller eventually just not right now. Sorry you don't understand my truck but I am not arguing over a website , it would be like having an argument while texting it just doesn't get anything accomplished , so just settle down and take a time out in the corner when you calm down you can come back out and play.

Pictures of the inside of the door? They look like you just cut out the inside and didnt do anything with it.

Was there anyway to relocate the door handle? I'd like to see the inside of the door as well. I realllly like the toolbox idea.


I want to do it when i'm solid...because well....there's ALOT that my truck just can't do as-is. The only time I find myself half out the window is on the rocks and well...i can't do much in that department right now. need cases and something not ifs. lol.

That is exactly why I'm at where I am with my truck. Locked, rock sldiers, custom skids, custome bumper, multi mount winch etc. and still factory angles = no breakage. I'm also in the process of collecting parts for my SAS. When I bought the truck I figurd there is no reason for putting on a suspension lift when I'm eventually going to SAS it.

cause draggin frame is one thing, crushing a bedside on a rock is a LITTLE more noticeable.. wanna know where most of MY lift is coming from? a BODY lift.. any double lifted truck on this site will tower over me.

most of the mods his done have been cheap or free.. a suspension lift or SAS takes a LOT more money and time.
