you dont see that the back is narrowed?

i pulled both ends in 6 1/4"

I kinda wanna go more but I'm gonna see how this works out first, it was gonna be a ton more work to narrow it anymore.

better clearance, I've hit the bottom of the bed a few times on rocks..

It also sucks them in keeping them away from trees and rocks to keep them from hitting the side..

I also cut the bottom of the bed off behind the wheel well 3" below the factory crease line, but that was because of all the bracing hitting the shackle mount, i didn't gain anything by doing that since the shackles are still hanging down.

I helped my friend this bob and dove tail his Toyota bed. Man did it ever make a difference in seeing where your tires are. There were a couple of times where if he had the stock bed, he would have smashed it into trees. It made a HUGE difference, I really think you are going to like this one. Now it is time to do the front end too haha.
