im a big fan of mildly chopped tops .... i dont liek when people remove 5 inches out of something but i think on a truck this long a 2 1/2 inch chop isnt extreme or out of place.
removing the window surrounds on the doors will actualy give the roof BACK some of the visual height because they are a little over an inch wide themselves. making the "total chop" @ the top of the side windows a mere 1 3/8 ... but allowing me to stretch the cab my 6-8 inches retain the stock windsheild, and keep from breaking a dozen windsheilds just to cut one good one
this way i can crossbrace the windsheild opening, cat the inner braces at the bottom behind the back ... lean it back till it lines up w/ the roof and weld it all back together solid ... the bottom of the a-pillars look kinda goofy anyways ... so it will give me a chance to fix that too
yea i know ... im nuts .... but if people dont think your nuts sometimes ... your not pushing boundries and your not creating new rules .....

Not partial to the "big wheel low profile tire" thing, but to each their own.........looks like it will be a sharp truck.
BTW, I like the stock roof also.

Nice trucks, I am a bit partial to Step-Sides, as my dad had his for years. I like the stock roof height though. His is lowered 6" in front 7" rear. I think theres a pic of it in the back ground in my album. Once its out of storage I'll put up some more of it.
