I personally think a roof would look good on it..... but if you dont want a roof You should Drop it, Paint it, and load the bed w/ speakers.

You'd have a tuff time selling it and making money on it. Have fun with it. You got a Sunday Driver or a show truck in the making. Looks cool.

whats supporting the body and keeping it from folding in on itself?

windsheild needs to be chopped a few inches and bring the angle down a bit. looks good though

full shave: handles tail lights gas door tailgate

mold the bed to the cab. just replace the front bumper with just more body

paint the sucker black with some silver racing stripes that work into the interior too and you're good to go.

maybe bag it....

I thought you had to add extra support if you chop a roof.
