    Decided to go with a rear roll pan instead of a bumper on a purely financial reason.....pan was way cheaper than a bumper!

    guess i should show a couple things that happened before I drove it! Here's some of the cuts I had to do to make the exhaust work with its low stance. I also had to cut 1" out of the header before the collector on the drivers side

    Ive also gotten rid of the big fuel cell in favor of an thin aluminum RCI fuel cell, Im also thinking of doing a false bed floor covered in black stained hardwood planks with recessed doors to access the battery, airride and fuel filler....Opinions? And I have thick skin so I can take the harshest of opinions!!!

    Decided to go different on the interior, shaved the vents in the top of the dash and got rid of the stock speaker cover

    You can see my 1st try at engine turning on my switch panel I made for the airride, also a good shot at how the tach looks behind the smoked plexi-glass

    I love it.
    I seen where you mentioned the body line you put in the bed, but don't see it. What did you do?
