    I have used the search function to find several pics of narrowed front ends. I have been able to find a lot of pictures of narrow jobs similar to sandman's, but none of the pics have a side view of the truck in particular the gap that is left at the door. I want to see how bad this gap really is when there are doors on the truck.

    Im not sure how many guys will post up these pics. I believe that most of these guys are making the fenders a couple of inches longer, and for the most part leave the back part of the fender close to the factory mounting angles. Leaving next to no gap for the door.
    I however thought i was making it easier on myself pushing the radiator support back a couple of inches. I cut my firewall, left the fenders mounted to the cab, and pushed the front end in like 6-8 inckes each side.
    Its all good untill i try to put the hood on. then my hood is like 3 or 4 inches too long due to the radiator support being pushed back. I am in the process of fiving this... here are the pics of my right side done...

    i know the doors arent on at this time, but i dont think the gap will be more than 1/2 an inch.. these are the only ones I have right now hope they can help
