    Mine was in a body shop anyway so I asked them to just go ahead and hack it off in the normal ck5 fashion. They refused because they thought it would look bad. I eventually talked them into it. However they cut metal out the middle of the fender, bend it back and welded it together. I gained about 2.5" inches at the back. You can stare it and not know; it looks so clean. I didn't end up paying for it cause they took so long to do other stuff. Good luck.

    I do but they're at home and I'm 500 miles away at school. So I guess the answer for another month is NO! Sorry. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I cut my bed all up myself, but then someone rearended me and I'm getting a new bed... I'm counting on the body shop cutting it back like I had it since they are supposed to return it to how it was before the wreck... But oh well, I'll probably end up spending 7 hours cutting it again /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
