    Was looking at my truck again, and wondered............What it would look like with sliders, trimming , and rockcrawler rims. Granted I won't be running 35's until next year ( when I regear ). But how does this look guys ?? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Looks like crap Paul don't do it, it's too "pretty" for all the off road crap, keep it mall rated, you KNOW you want too. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    What size sliders are you plannin on? If you're thinkin maybe 3x3 and you can stand to wait a while and you wanna maybe save some money, maybe we could go in together on a whole stick? Lots of maybes huh?

    Good luck to y'all in the future. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That could work Allan. Of course I am thinking maybe sliders under rockers like fatbob's , or the ones on Rob's pickup. But either way 3x3 sounds cool. You weld and I'll pony up for the steel, let me know how much and we can do this in a few weeks. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The rear bumper, I think I want to let Jay make that , I like his /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Rob and I were just talkin about this last night. One rock crawling trip and paul is thinking of using the sawzall. You know paul, we all had clean trucks to start with (me, harley, fred, rob, marv, DJ, mikey, jay, and a few others I can't think of) the list of sheetmetal victims will continue to grow with the wisdon and guidance of those on the dark side. It just depends on how much fun you want to have (usually at the expense of sheetmetal).

    With you guys as spotters, 35's, some sliders, and light trimming do you think I could do some of the harder stuff. I still think I can hang /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    BTW I really don't think I'd cut mine too bad, just thinking /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
