    rob,
    hey, looks fine. where's the back end? you gotta stick the backend on for cosmetics. even if it's jus a piece of sheetmetal.

    uh, think it'll fit?

    Cool, why not cut back the rear corners some more, so they are even with the floor, they look like they would just get in the way.

    Did you say you are getting a spare tire carrier? What is your plan?

    Looks sweet...you cut off even more than I did. Why did you chop it back that far when the frame still has to stick out? Just curious, you look more purpose built anyway. I like it! What's your exocage plan?

    Nooooooo... Man I loved that truck before you hacked it..
    I know this is just my opinion.. but it doesn't look like a k5 anymore..
    But glad to see you and Bryan have the ball's to hack away at your trucks...

    its hard to put into words what im planning, but ill try...

    1.5" chromoly tube along the side just under and slightly outside the sheetmetal, from wheel arch to wheel arch. tied into the cage for lateral support and tabs to hang a sheet of 11 gauge aluminum angled into and under the body, as a new 'rocker'. -like k5 of the month.
    the rear is purposeful; a horizontal hoop will extend outward from the rear even with the frame with tabs for an aluminum panel holding the taillights and tag. an 'X' on the back of the cage will locate the wingnut to secure the spare.
    why?
    something different, yet functional.
    MTPockets
    stay tuned...

    yeah baby!!! well, my opinion is this,,,,you can keep the sheetmetal on and bash it up, or you can cut most of it out, and keep whats left straight and clean. i am not yet to this stage!!! but i do like it, i would come down to gardendalke the following weekend w/ya, but we are planning on going to the 4xjamborees in anderson south carolina. already got the truck registered so we can cruise the fairgrounds!!!!!

    later bro,,,,,,,rob
