    Spent some time on my junk today. Here's a couple pics for you. Had to trim some more and now its a 5 window.:haha: Hard to see from the pics but the floor in the rear of the cab is gone and has been replaced by a lexan window.

    kick arse kert. I really like what you did with the front/grille area... pretty cool and unique too.

    What do you store in the far back? At some point I think ya oughta lop the frame just behind the shackle brackets and shorten the bed a little bit more. :thumb: 90 degree departure with leafs is cool.

    Lookin' killer as always. Good to see you got the ram in. You really ended up taking a ****load more out of the fenders.

    I think if my junk is rollable for next years open house we should put a friendly wager on the RTI competition, I've got a trick or two up my sleeve. :D

    You gonna be around on Friday? I've gotta go to Sioux Falls for the weekend so I figured I'd just come down and grab my dust cover sometime in the afternoon.

    Yep, I did take alot more fender off. The front was the worst. Probably 4" more off the top and in the front as well. Knocked a few more inches off the bumper as well.

    List is getting pretty short these days so Blazer Bash is looking good! Can't wait to drive the damn thing. Been far to long.

    I'll be here on Friday for sure. Probably late into the evening slinging more tube at the cage.

    JEK,

    in the far back of the truck is the radiator, dual battery box and air tank. Gona get a spare tire rack of some sort up there yet as well.

    If you are referring to the far back of the cab, it was intended for a 3rd seat but after looking things over last night there just isn't enough room. Now it will become some sort of storage for tools and spares I guess.

    Not ready to lop the frame off just yet. Got some other ideas for getting a better departure angle. Have to see how it does at Blazer Bash and then go from there. I hoped to have it done early enough to go shake some of the bugs out of it before Moab but that doesn't look like its gona happen.
