Cut the Bedsides, now i took the doors off....

whats next???

it was so f***in PIMP!
i passed 6 cops, didn't get pulled over

it was 20-30 when the sun was still out... then we drove about 70mph out of town to have a killer bond fire and do some muddy hill climbs , not as much mud as i would have expected got into the truck. hardly any at that actually.

those things are HEAVY to carry across a parking lot and up to the second floor... never mind having to hold steady while the other person puts the bolts in

hahahahahha

I know in Pa. I asked a cop who wrote me a ticket for not having a rear bumper about running with no doors and he said you can as long as there is a 3"-4" lip, ?to kinda keep your feet inside the cab I guess?, that is was okay.

I dunno if I wanna make quick d/c's for the wiring and just pin the doors so they come off easier or make half doors for the summer time. I gotta get my pig running first though.

Running without the doors on a four door Super Cab might not be such a good idea. Because there is no B pillar, the doors really need to be there in a wreck for structural integrity. It could also cause the body to flex more during normal driving. Just some things to take into consideration.

i just cut all the wires, as we speak i'm getting ready to head out and get some of those 4-pin trailer wire connectors for the wires..

Gotcha, I think I'm gonna go the half door route just so I could put some junk speakers in it and not have to worry about a door lip. It'd be nice to find a set of sonic blue doors to cut but don't think that'll happen.

I used to do that with my '81 Yota. I'd ride with my leg out the "door" on the rock slider. It was always fun; I like your style

I've probably said this before, but I'll say it again..

Seeing as you went ahead and cut your rear fenders out, running even up to a 38 will clear just fine. You see my truck. I only opened my fenders up because I was removing the body lift. If you want the extra lift from the body lift, then by all means go for it. Just in heinsight for myself, I'd vote you stay without a body lift.

Again, just my .02 dood..
