Some purist is crying somewhere for sure... I remember the first posts about this build I saw on FTE... This started out as a really clean example of an ex cab long bed...


But, it is a baddass rig, so who cares? LOL

So, what do you have planned? Or is it just random trimming?

Definatly want to up my capabilities, but I want to keep some sheetmetal so it at least kinda resembles what it is/was. Probably going to bring the sides in to the width of the cage. I'm just not big on the whole tube frame on a fullsize frame look. (sorry Russ )
New suspension is in floating around my brain too, but that'll probably come after it's back together & 'wheelin again.

Oh, mixed emotions While I want to kill you for doing that to an ext cab like that, I'd like to see you wheel it bc it is obvious that the condition of your truck is never in mind... sigh...




Badass.

went around the outer edge with a cutoff wheel, & just poped the adhesive holding the middle together apart with a small prybar between the 2 layers.

it's pretty flimsy, & it would never hold up to a typical hinge/spring & latch setup. I'm also going to be narrowing it, but until I figure out how much I don't know how it'll end up being attached.
