    Well, I finished them for the cab. I am going to use a separte slider for the bed that will mount up to the supports underneath it. This will allow the cab and bed to move separate still. I used 1/2" plate for that rear mount cause its so long and bolted it where the seat belts are. I can pick up the truck with it with and no deflection!! What do you think? I'm ready for the Toyota Jamboree in Johnson Valley this weekend :doah: Who wants to join me so I won't be the only Chevy??

    That paint job took a while, I probably wet sanded for about a week after i laid it. Laquer is easy to touch up :grin: As for Johnson Valley, I don't know where I will be parking, this is my first time going and I am meeting friends there that will get there late. I plan on being there Friday night by sunset. If you see me come and stop by, I'd love to meet some members from here!

    I am signed up for the SUV Run I think. My friends' rigs aren't too set up, but I am definetly down to go do some goofing around, never wheeled much with other fullsizes; maybe we could get some fullsizes together for a later trail ride. It'll be nice to no be the only "big" rig out there!! :truck:

    There's a whole bunch of us signed up for clawhammer. Should be fun, if we arent all too broken you can watch us go play on the ARCA course.
