    I was just reading through my own parts ad, and realized I have some good components to throw together a poser show truck.

    A double tube chrome bed bar.

    A set of Warn fender flares (the kind that limit clearance)

    A chrome rear drop bumper

    A chrome bar grille

    A huge looking black front bumper with 2" receiver and tow hooks, of which have no frame backing to actually support any stress.

    I wonder if I should throw all these on my '84 K20 and see if it sells better. :blush: It's already got Thornbirds on it.

    I would bet you throw them chrome bumpers on it and it would sell faster. LOL
