thanks everyone for comments and yes it does block alot of my view but thats ok if someone it me in the *** end then its their fault, and I didn't want to sacrifice alot of my bed room for a tire, and to the posts about wind
and mpg i am pretty lucky dont have to drive for to work and i only work 2 days a week 2 24hr shifts on an ambulance, and yes the wind does slow the truck down greatly but that the fun part about having what you want have to sacrifice a little sometimes if i did not answer your question uin this post i will try next time BY THE WAY TENNESSEE OFF ROAD WILL MAKE THESE BELIEVE IT OR NOT BUT IT CAN BE REMOVED AND THERE IS NOT A SINGLE DRILL HOLE IN THE BODY OR WELD USEES FACTORY HOLES IN THE BED SO FOR THE GUYS WHO DO NOT BIG HOLES CUT IN THEIR TRUCKS HERE IT IS SOME LIKE IT SOME DON'T BUT THATS OK

yes it can be reversed 04blackedge was right it will have to be unbolted and everything swapped take about 20 minutes to unbolt, remove taillights, and put it all back together and no it does not have a lock on it yet but i am about to drill a hole in one of the lugs and put on a masterlock oh by the way i mounted my hi-lift on it also
