Thnks, yes the windshield is going to be a bear, but I hvae been doing my research and my guys tell me they have a handle on it. I will keep you posted on how many we break before we get it right. There is an outfit out west called Tri Valley Glass I believe that specializes in chop top glass.

As for me @ 5'6" chopped the top so I can look 6'4". LOL

nice color, is the truck going to stay that color?
15.5" tires, cool. i'm surprized you got 15.5 tires to clear the stock springs.

you can be next in line for my truck too, i plan to either die in it or be buried with it...

lodown58: steelies, need i say more
other than, at 6'4" i'm the shortest male in my family of 2 bros, 1 son & 4 nephews,
also have a sister & a niece close behind me, the shortest in the whole family of 18 is only 5'8"

They didn't fit.. I had to narrow the old frame in the back... I would have gone bigger,But he came to me with the tires already and said make these fit under this truck.. And I said no problem..
