    As some have been following my other thread, here are the finished product pics of my K30.

    Stage one for this truck is basically complete, which was paint, billet, and wheels/tires. I've got a few more cosmetic things to do, like clear side marker lights and either a visor with clearance lights or factory style with clear lenses.

    Stage 2 is actually setting it up for what the truck is planned for, WORK!

    Miller Bobcat for welder/generator, air compressor, torch, bolt bin, supplies, and plenty of hand/air/power tools.

    I think you can get it in a taller version. This heigth is fine for me, I just wish the lids popped open like I've seen some have. This body has a solid lid but with a door above the tail lights that enables you to slide in say an 8' piece of pipe, steel, or a 2x6, etc.

    It's an 01-02 HD billet bowtie. I got it on clearance through Summit. I used a 94-98 bowtie on my K5, but thought the slightly larger HD version with the outline would look good.

    Those are the stockers. I'm going to put the stock grille on Ebay as it's in PERFECT shape, even barely any fading at all, since the truck has been stored inside most of it's life.

    Great job - love it - now you need some clear LED round tail-lights - check the truck stop shops!
