    It looks damn good. Is it going to be a DD or trail truck or ...? I really like the front bumper. Are there any more plans for the truck or is it 100% done? I personally would add a set of sliders, and gusset the cage some along with add in a set of spreader bars above the front passengers heads.

    I really like your truck. It is nice and burly but too huge to make it hard to drive or look goofy.

    Nice rig. Almost too nice. But hey, why buy a 4x4 if you only need a 2wd. Blaze the trails.

    As far as I'm concerned, that's just about the PERFECT K5!!!!
    • Nice body
    • Beefy upgrades
    • Appropriate safety/recovery features
    • Full convertible

    Very nicely done. :usaflag:
