Re: late model bed

I have seen other posts here and there of your truck and I would love to see a build page of your entire truck build one day. I love the color too!

Re: late model bed

How about the chop? Did you section and lengthen the roof or use the roof from 2 trucks? Did you lay the A pillars back? Nice job on the doors.

Re: late model bed

Hey Don where in St cloud you located. I'm down the road in Kiss, and would love to stop by and see your truck first hand. I'm doing a 56. I've seen your posts before but never checked the location. Keep up the good work!

Re: late model bed

Bob, Ichopped the top & lengthened the roof by adding metal. I did not use
2 cabs., but I used 4 doors.

I have not driven it yet, but it appears to have plenty of leg room.
