I suggest leaving the tail gate on for installation it's a great reference. there will be enough room to drill and besides you don't want your tailgate to rub.

I know it's not a great pic of the pan but at least you know I've done the mod and can hopefully take my advice.

Actually, I went with the Grant kustoms compound curve pan. And I'm having The Hack Shack weld it in on Saturday. Thanks to J.Dougan for the great deal on the pan, and the hook up with the hack shack. I'll post more pics up as the work progresses.

Asian babies with spoons are faster. However, American labor with real tools won't have it on until Saturday. I have to wait for an opening or something. Then I have to wait for an opening at the paint shop. Meh, all this waiting is gonna kill me!

the roll pan will look good, what are you doing with the old bumper? or even just the plastic part of the old bumper? are you interested in selling it?

Thanks,

The old bumper and plastic part are damaged. Thats why I'm panning it. Someone hit my truck in the parking lot, and insurance is footing the bill. Parts damaged: bumper, step cover(plastic part), and tailgate. The plastic part isn't bad, and if you want it, shoot me a PM and just cover shipping, I'll send it to ya.

Well, time for an update. hack Shack put the pan on yesterday. Not 100% pleased with it. They only welded the sides and used screws along the top. Also, they didn't seal the back side so now I have to pull the bed off and paint it from behind so it won't rust. The bondo work isn't "finish" work, and to cap it all off, they left the windows down while they did it, so now I have to clean the interior. Oh, yeah, and they over sprayed primer on the exhaust tip. but they were cheap, and I guess you get what you pay for. Sorry, I'm just a bit **** about things. My paint guys will fix the bondo work, but it'll cost me more in the long run.
now on to pics!

Molded in looks so much cleaner though. I would have rather had it welded than bonded though.

I see you had to trim the spare tire holder. Can you still have the spare tire underneath the bed with the roll pan on? I like the looks of them but I've heard you can't have a spare tire underneath with a roll pan.

^^^^What he said. I didn't even drop the spare down while trimming, 'cause the donut spare doesn't overlap that area.. Now maybe a 33" bogger would have clearance issues, but not a regular full size.
And I'm gonna look into a way to leave the donut spare up there with the behind-the-pan hitch.
