    Now that that is done all thats left is the lower bumper bar, the 2nd upper bumper bar that protrudes out for a step, and then the stuff that goes up and over the fender flares and down to the front of the bed. Until next Sunday!

    Looks good
    Can I ask why you angeled the side cut?
    Why did you not just cut it parallel to the body line?

    There was a brace that runs under the bed that intersected the bed side so I had to angle it. Doesn't matter, the body line will be covered up anyway soon.

    Yeah me too, doesn't look just like a huge step from the body in front of the tire to the body in the back of the tire. More of a transition. I am getting some pretty interesting looks though while driving around today /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
