    You will probably want to add some type of support rod between the quarter panels if you are not going to run a tailgate. When you start wheeling it you will flex the body alot and the QP's will shift and move without support. They will also fold in if you smack them hard on rocks.

    If you don't ever plan on putting a tailgate back on or the top back on then it isn't as much of a problem but your bedsides will look all tweeked from the back.

    az-k5 runs some support rods but he still collapsed a bedside and bent the other side in on rocks.

    Looks good though. When is the maiden voyage? Are you planning on bashing it or trying to keep it clean an prestine? If you are planning on avoiding some body damage you will want to get some bumpers with some good armor and a set of integrated rock sliders with kickers to help keep the body away from the rocks some.

    I'd let him have the projects flat black tailgate , the window stuff is going in the circular file , would make great storage area for spare parts :k5: :k5:

    Its yours then , I ain't using it , its flat black , has a dent , window broken . You can get the hadware and gate and keep your stuff back there . A piece of plywood and some hardware store hinges for the inside to cover it , and it will be great to store shafts and such :thumb:

    Is that a custom 465/203 adapter? Very nice looking!

    The truck looks great! I love how the steering parts absolutely stand out, VERY NICE!

    Awesome, thanks Paul!

    Yes, thats a custom adapter my dad and I designed. We didn't like the 10 spline so we designed that and now have a 23 spline shaft.
