and i think this one kinda makes the truck look big.. I'm still under the illusion its a small truck, because it really is, the roof was about even with a stock 1500 mega cab..

yep, his truck hasn't changed much. His wife wants the camo gone, but everyone else doesn't lol.. well except that chick that was taking random pics haha

i couldddd, if you remind me at some point..
We're gonna start to hack the bed up at like 8 tomorrow moring, under 4 hours from now, hopefully its done so i can drive to work with a dove tailed truck by 2

its like a whole new truck w/o 2 sets of leaf springs, a huge *** bumper, heavy tool box and a bed on the back, the leaves have some arch now and its rides like a truck again, it used to be a nice cushy ride.. now its all stiff :(

I see him a few times a week generally
its just radius arms, and custom mounts for the coils so instead of extending the coil buckets from the frame, the coils are narrowed on the axle.

I like it.

How did the bedside react when you pulled it in? Anything funny? Or did it keep its shape?

Looks badass man, I like your license plate mount too lol. You need to buy a couple cans on the cheapest black spray paint you can find and paint all under your truck with it.

You planning on putting that big tube bumper back on it, narrowing it down, or making a new bumper?
