A-Banger- hes talking about the area of the bed where the filler neck was clearanced in the box. The front d-side there is a small hump in front of the wheel well.

Justin- I think some folk just move it back, but that looks like walrus butt if you ask me. Do you have any pics of the mounts on the roll bar?

i think it would be cheaper/ easier to cut the rollbar mount and turn it. Might want to measure the mount and the space on the bed to make sure it will fit before you take it somewhere.

ok i know what its doing cause i was doing the same in mike's truck bring it up here or me and mike can come down their and check it out.. because i thing cutting the mount is better cause you cant cut the bump out cause that is where your filler neck is at for your gas tank.... alright... but i think that you might have to bring it up here cause i cant bring all the tools and welder down their....
