Have you thought about making a batch of AL body lifts to sell? They look sweet.

the ones he made are to solid mount the body to the frame.

I'm not sold with the bed on it either... yet. I want to see more pictures of it before I give my final opinion. I kinda like the look where you can see all the cage in the back.

How did you ending up mounting the bed sides?

What are the laws up there? Tires can only stick out x amount past the fenders or it just has to have fenders?

You gonna run the cage down the side of the truck to the sliders? Or are you just going to leave the side all open?

Looks sweet, but I also say no bedsides. But you gotta do what you gotta do to keep it legal.

Bed sides on FTW

I think an internal cage after the 5.4 swap though, I'm not a huge exo fan. But, either way that is one bad *** truck.

Beard you are officially my new hero

I think it looks awesome with the bedside on there.

Besides if I remember right, the plan was to run bedsides for the run, and maybe pull them off off-road.

Christ man, that is the hottest truck I've ever seen.

Do all of that to mine, I want the same thing, in black.

I'll give you a kidney and a few grand!

I like the bedsides, but if you don't mind me saying, it looks like they need a bit more support.
