Wtf is that a girl man? You seriously need to stop using that cellphone cam, or at least stop pickin up trannies!

Are you gonna eventually go to exo? You might be able to sell your bed with fenders now, but prolly not all cut up later? If you're gonna eventually go exo you might as well start now!

Dude, are you freaking crazy? That wheel/tire combo is pimp. Those damn wheels are worth more than your truck.

I'd say go ahead & cut the bed & see what you got & then if you don't like it of w.e, go ahead & make a new one.

Jey..

In all honesty.. doesn't matter which way ya go. You've gone above and beyond what anyone else.. ( trying to phrase this so it doesn;t sound liek ****-kissing ).

Face it, your ' rig ' is probably the most noteworthy and functional of any others on this site. It doesn;t matter what you do next as that vehical can go just about anywhere without further modification. Anything you do now is just ' icing on the cake ' so to say.

Coming from a guy whom doesn't care for lifted vehicals, you have my respect.

I appreciate the praise D. It's taken a lot of hard work to get it where it is.

It's sitting on 42x14r15 Irok's for those who can't tell .

If my d44 can't hold up (which I'm not really sure, chromo's and CTM's will help, but they are 42's) then I have a set of rockwells lined up in NC.

After TTC he said if it was still running he was going to run some trails down in memphis. That I would have to attend to see it.

He lives in TN. So I'm sure he runs trails around that area often.

I don't think my 3.slow would compete with his 502.
