    Bobbed ususally means the tailend of the truck shortened (E.G., cut of a foot or two behind the rear fenders). Tucked refers to the fenders tapered toward the inside of the truck (like a lot of fullsize guys are doing on here). /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yes, but narrowing would usually refer to the whole truck, not just the ends, so Fourwheeler used the term "tucked".

    Not sure but I believe Yunit is literally narrowing his entire body, as well as, tucking/tapering/making it pointy on the ends. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    from what I understood from what james said is that narrowing is the whole body, like yunit is, and tapering/tucking would just be narrowing the fenders

    Yes, I think he is narrowing the entire body from what I understand.

    I think he is doing this also. So he will end up with a narrowed, tucked/tapered K5 body. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
