Thats sweet man I really like the bed. Do you have any pics of the bed cage?
Are you going to go with an exo or internal when you do the whole thing?

Very nice! looks like you got it to come out very clean.


How did the floor work out, did you reuse the original?

Also, did you have any problems keeping the bedsides from kinking? when i doved mine i had to make some clearance cuts on the inside to keep the body lines straight. Just wondering what you had to do?

Anyways looks great!

Maybe i will make it back up to Medicine bow this summer and we can meet up to wheel or camp. I havent been back up to snowy range/ french creek in a couple years.

Im building a full internal, it will suround the winshield, go behind the dash, thru the firewall, behind the front fenders (with a piece that goes over ythe engine, connecting the shock hoops) and tie into the stinger.
I did not use any of the floor due to bilsteins goin way thru the floor, bed cage, and fuel cell space, i also wanted to drop the tool box down a few inches. I didnt have any problems with kinking because i removed the entire floor and front wall of the bed. Its just bedsides on a tubing frame.
I sectioned the tailgate 20", and bobbed 10". BTW i used NO bondo, thats all metal work.
