how much of the trim did you use out of that roll? I am trying to figure out if I am going to need 2 rolls or not.

Have you thought about shaving the stock fuel door? Any pics of the inside of the bed w/ the cell?

Oh by the way I still love your truck, but you knew that.

That is a clean cut. I am thinking that you used a plasma cutter. How did you line it up and get such a clean cut.

Plasma would leave a jagged edge you can get a very clean cut with a diegrinder just go slow and take your time

Looks like you did a really good job.

IMO the cuts are way to big. Maybe when you get 40's it will look better.

It wasn't just a diegrinder, had to sand it to make it not rough.

I was sneezing crap up for a couple days

it looks so smoooooth because he has that plastic molding on there, which is what I'm gonna ask about..


did you just cut it? or did you roll it over too? I bent/rolled mine in and couldn't quite fit the stripping on there..

either way.. it looks good!
is a D60 front in the works? 40s+v8+d44? or are you just going to upgrade the 44?

Good work as usual, I expected nothing less. The cut looks like a good size and has good shape. The only thing is I think it looks kind of goofy since your front fenders aren't cut yet, after you do them I'm sure it'll look much better.
